I need to make educational videos for posting on Youtube. The particular problem is that these videos are for electronic devices and need to be made in close-up mode. I have tried several cameras but the combination of movie mode - closeup mode does not seem to be a priority for the manufacturer.
My budget is limited to under 200.00. Does anyone have suggestions for new or used cameras that do an exceptional job for videos?
