What Is The Best Camera For Video? Pros and cons of different types/brands
Posted 25 May 2011 - 12:42 PM
I am interested in purchasing a new camera to take HD videos and was curious to see if anyone had any opinions on what will give me the most bang for my buck. I am more interested in HD videos than still images, and I'm not interested in the MOST expensive, nor the LEAST expensive. Mid-grade; for mostly business-use with a little personal thrown in for good measure.
Any help/experience would be greatly appreciated.

I personally enjoy the Pentax better because of it's built-in image stabilization meaning I can hand-hold video and have it come out smooth with less jitter.
But also check out what Cnet has to offer-
I should note that the Pentax/Canon cameras have bigger sensors than the HD camcorders...

And what camera are you using now? I have Sony H9 and even standard videos (size 640) are of good quality and the camera supports HD. So it all depends on your budget. Cameras recommended by crazy4laptops are rather expensive.

Canon came early to the digital camcorder market and builds a very high quality device.
Sony has been in professional/broadcast equipment for decades and holds the number one position in those markets. Their technology is found in just about every other digital camera from the cheapest to the most expensive. Even their lesser models deliver in a big way.
Panasonic has also made a name in professional and broadcast situations and much of their technology has been licensed by others. Their lower priced units are really really good.
