Hello everyone, my name is Peyton and I'm new to this forum.
I am looking to find the right HD camera for me, and I have a few questions that I think you guys will be able to help me with.
I have a friend who is into filming and he suggested that I purchase an HV30. I did some research and found some very impressive work done with this camera. The only problem is that I cannot find a new HV30 anywhere at a reasonable price.
Then I saw the HF M31. I started to look more and more into Canon's series and the more I read the more confused I become. There are so many cameras and I have no clue what I'm looking for. I feel like the HV30 and HV40 were pretty much THE HD camera to have, but now a lot of new cameras are coming out. So what is the "new" HV30?
Can anyone explain to me what made the HV30 so good, and what I can look for in newer models so that I can find a comparable camera that will give me similar or better results?
Specific suggestions would also be very much appreciated. Thank you in advance for any advice or help you can give me.
ALSO, my computer specs :
mobo: M2n sli deluxe
videocard: geforce 9600
Ram: 2gigs (willing to upgrade to 4g if needed)
Processor : dualcore 2.8 ghz AMD
will my computer be able to handle editing HD footage?
