it keeps cropping up in post after post. You simply cannot buy a professional camcorder for $1,200 even without all of the extras you want with it. If you do manage to obtain one, it is quite likely that your new Dell cannot keep up with a live feed from the camera.
I suggest spending a lot more time researching equipment and requirements before setting budgets and buying equipment.
Hello I just ordered a Dell XPS 8100 I7 870 8mb cache core processer, 8gb ram, 1 tb HDD, ATI Radion 5670 (1GB) video card.I need help determining what to buy as a camera. The Camera will be about 80' from the podium in a very well lit building. We were willing to spend no more than 1200.00 (hopefully). Would also be carrying it to church functions. I use Livestream Virtual studio software but would like to start using Procaster to stream with. Would also like to have a remote for zooming and a good tripod. Well a power supply also. Probably a lot to ask for 1200.00. Was looking at the JVC GY DV500U I found about a month and a half ago. 1200.00 Rebuilt by JVC although I cant track the guy down now. I know nothing about this. I was told high optical zoom and big chip ?????? Help Please.
