Which Digital Video Camera?
 
Anybody paying attention in this space? What would you buy and why?

I probably would avoid rotating media but other than that, I don't have any preconceived opinions.

I was researching these a while back. Didn't buy one. Was looking at a Cannon small HD one that takes SD cards. Seemed like it had great reviews.

I think this is the one

I reviewed a bunch of them, but bought a trailer instead. My non HD one will have to last a while

I've been happy with my 8mm Sony that is probably 10 years old so I've been looking at those...

I think it was this version that I decided was what I'd like but they're pretty pricey :(

HDR-XR520V

what are you using it for? Just kid/wheeling clips, or more professional videos?



We've actually been very pleased with the quality from our little point & shoot Canon powershot SD750, since all we want are little videos to watch on the computer.

The Flip Video cameras are pretty cool.

I bought a Flip for last year's trip to Europe. It worked great, easy to carry and use. It comes with a nice basic software pkg so I was able to post to Youtube the same day I shot the video.

My kids play sports and there really is no substitute for video in terms of teaching. I need to have the boy see his stride pitching. I want to be able to show the little girl where she should be for rebounds. I do want to video some wheeling, hiking, home stuff.

Plus I am going to quit playing fast-pitch baseball (I am gonna be 49) and wouldn't mind getting some high-quality video of a 450' bomb before I hang 'em up completely:D

I should look at the flips. They have them at BestBuy and you can try them out there. Some of the Canons sans hard drives look appealing too.

we have a basic JVC camera
 
Ours is used for kid-stuff, parody videos for the company holiday party, etc. It's HD, 30gb HD and does a fine job. It was about $600 4 years ago at Best Buy and the same/slightly better/newer one is about $400. works fine for me, but I'm no video hound. it's wicked small, I like that. (yes, I'm orginally from Mass.)
