I am looking for a dvd and still digital camera. They say the sony dvd cam is pretty good but it is out of my price range. I want something good but not to expensive. I got my hands on a panasonic one and I was not that impressed. The clarity was not that great. I was kinda hopeing some one could suggest one. I am getting it for my wife. She is a beginning director and I want to surprise her for xmas. She is presenting a film at the Milan film fest in March and I want to make it alittle easier for her. Help please.
A DVD camera may not be best for your wife if she is interested in top quality or film editing. DVD cameras store as a fairly low quality MPEG, prone to compression artifacts, especially with panning or rapid motion.
