Camera advice needed...

Recommended Posts

Hello, I am in the process of doing some research on cameras for someone. They are looking to start filming for public television but on a budget since most of it when on computer, sound, and music equipment. Here is a list of what they are trying to find in their camera.

 

1) SD camera that would work great with a Mac.

2) Camera that has a little bit of weight to it instead of one of the really light ones.

3) clear video is the main key here

 

We are looking at two price ranges...

A ) 250-350

B ) 500-600

 

What are your suggestions in both of those price ranges?

 

Thanks for your time;

Herby

I apologize I must have posted this question in the wrong area of the forum. Could one tell me where it should have been posted so that I can get advice on this topic.

Yes, I do realize that. They are just starting to learn filming and do not want to spend the money right now to get a professional camera since they will not be making money filming. They are looking to buy a camera that is one step above your $199 Wal-Mart Specials, something that will last a couple of years, till they can get a better camera.

Ironically you'd probably be cheaper off looking into HDV camcorders for around $500-800 or so. Canon has some nice offerings, I'm a bit out of touch with them, but as they're mass produced, they're often cheaper.

You might be able to find an old Ikegami that shoots betaSP on ebay for around that. But then you got to figure out your workflow.
