Hello HV20 Forum, Ive done video editing in the past but we were using vhs and screenplays to edit. Technology has changed significantly in the last 10 years.
Im getting back into video editing and recording. I want to shoot short films and documentaries. I really like the film look the canon cameras are giving off (for the price they are godlike).
I currently have an Imac with an intel duo core 2.4 ghz processor, and im really undecided which camera i should get.
Ive read pros and cons of alot of the cameras but i would like a recommendation.
I would like to go Tapeless, but i hear the quality in Hv20,30,40 are great, but can i achieve the same look with an HF200 (whats similiar or better to this camera)?
Should i be looking at something else?
I went to Bestbuy but the models there are different like HFS etc...
Im really confused this has been a hard journey and im glad i found this forum. With my Mac do you think i will be able to handle AVCHD?
Please note that the 24P film look is what im looking for, what would you guys recommend as add ons for shooting the above mentiioned, like 35mm adapters (brands is Jag35 GOOD?) boom mics etc..
im sorry i know i sound like a total newbie and its because i am. I would really appreciate your help guys. Thanks.
