or is still only and I should ?
I think Jcolman can probably answer your question.
what is your question?
He did ask me but I don't know squat about consumer level camcorders.
He can ask me, I know a good amount about consumer/prosumer camcorders. Just post the question here
just post the question
I'm looking for a video cam for my son. He wants something that can record in low light situations (clubs). He'll be using it to record his band in shows at local clubs.
Price range $1-2k
I used a Sony vx2000 to record local bands for a few years, the Sony vx2100 is better in low light I would assume. I then got a canon hv20 and loved it. It is a very decent camera at a very fair price. There is a large void of quality camcorders between ~600 dollars and then 1500 dollars. I would advise you to look into the canon HV30 and read some reviews. Many video cameras will be ok for what he wants to do and I think a HV30 would suit him well.
I think that tapes are better than hard drive based camcorders solely because they are perfected and a very good way of backing up data easily.
The image quality on these are really good and I 2nd shot a few weddings with them and the footage was decent compared to the primary shooters pro equipment for cocktail hour type stuff
No problemo, HV20 and HV30 are great cameras
