A video camera will simply not give you high quality photographs. That's not its primary function, and video frames, at the SD level, do not yield high quality stills.
Similarly, a still camera will not produce high quality video even if it is a good still camera.
DVD cameras should be avoided.
I'm looking for a camcorder that is excellent for indoor/outdoor low light shots. Do you have a suggestion? I'm looking in the price range of $600 to $750.
I've been told that camcorders are not good for analog to digital conversions.
I'd prefer it records to DVD but I'm not stuck on the idea.
A few years ago, Sony came out with a camcorder that was excellent for nightvision. But I can't remember what the camera was called.
Anyway, I'm basically looking for a digital camera/camcorder that will allow me to take pictures/video record at night like taking pictures of the night sky with moon for the outdoors.
Both camera and camcorder suggestions would also be appreciated. I know that a still or LCR digital camera would be the best choice. But I'm also looking for a camcorder for the same job.
