I need a camcorder.
Any ideas? I tried the pricey Canons already, and the files are gargantuan and hard to wield. Same with the Panasonics & so forth.
I am looking for a frame rate above 30, because as on the vid I just posted, my fingers are way faster than my camera at 30fps.
I am also looking for a 720i or 720p recording mode. All I need it for is mainly guitar picking videos. It needs a flip screen and a good tripod mount. Not asking for much here.
Of all the biggy cameras, the software is way more then the camera, not to mention that I would have to purchase a computer with a newer OS just to edit with my Mega pricey program. When I check things out, it looks like about 2-3 grand just to make a couple of nice vids.
So I am hoping someone knows of a (Preferably SD card based) camcorder with stereo audio input who’s files can be manipulated on a 3 ghz Pentium.
I also am looking for moderately priced software for editing that doesn’t cost an arm and a leg. It would be nice if it ran on Win XP with no more than SP1 on it. So is this an impossible search?
Shopping sucks if you try to be thorough in your research.
