Think about using a camcorder.
Most of Europe has a tariff on cameras.
Any camera that can record video for 30 minutes or longer is classified as a video camera.
That means it will be taxed at a higher rate.
To get around this tax, most digital camera makers limit how long you can record a video.
Some camera makers sell a different camera for Europe and another for the USA.
Some digital cameras recording time are limited by the file size.
Many digital cameras warn you about overheating causing premature shutdown.
Camcorders do not have these problems.
Here is a link to the Camcorders Forum:
I had the Canon Powershot 100HS Elph ($90)
It was (almost) everything I needed.
- It has slow motion recording capability so I can play back the content in slow motion on the camera.
- It records directly to .mov format (which I need for another program I use).
However, it would only record 10 minutes worth of video then shut off automatically. Additionally, it has generated an Error 32 which I have come to find out is a flaw in the camera that has rendered it virtually unusable.
I am looking to replace the camera for around $200 and I need to find one that records straight to .mov format and will record for longer lengths (preferably more than 60 min.). There are so many digital cameras out there it would take forever to research the specs on every camera so I thought I would ask here first.
Thanks in advance!
