Sorry for the quick round trip but this is where you'll land today. Check back next year to see what's next.
I'm interested in buying another camcorder for my company but I have some issues I'm trying to work out first. Maybe you can enlighten me on some things.
We're thinking of going with mini DVD or hard drive but we're concerned about the compression issue. We plan on using the camera for informal shooting but I know there will be times where we'll need it to shoot something that we'll have to edit and create a good-looking final product. Of course, we don't want to digitize compressed media and output compressed media. We'd like full resolution so we can play with it any way we want.
What cameras would be good to look at that don't compress to MPEG-2 and aren't too expensive? We're looking at a $700 ceiling on this. I'm thinking there's got to be a prosumer model out there somewhere.
Thanks for the help.
