HS coach needs camcorder

Our HS is looking for a budget HD camcorder to film games from a center court view. I realize that pretty much any camcorder can do this nowadays, but if you could recommend a traditional camcorder with zoom capabilities, it would be great.

I see people trying to record with iPhones, iPads and small sensor action cams ( I own an osmo pocket), but when uploaded to a site like HUDL, the additional compression makes those videos awful.

Any suggestions are appreciated. Budget is up to $500.

Search on reputed vendor sites like B&H Photo and look for Panasonic consumer camcorders. There are a few good, proven models in your price range and requirements. Why Panasonic and not Canon, Sony or JVC? Because their camcorders that now sell in that range are relatively poor in image quality or useful features or both.

Thank you. Going to try the v180k. It’s cheap enough and should do the trick. I compared to Canon and Sony. With my own experience, Canon image is usually very soft and Sony can be hit or miss with their lower priced models.

Many good choices of 5-10 old HD camcorders on eBay for less than $100.
