I have been shooting videos (corp. assembly videos) for a few years now but I just use a handheld camcorder (consumer grade). I amstartingto branch out now and I am starting to get project to film interviews and sales videos (for web use). I was wanting to purchase a new (used) camera and waswonderingwhat my best optionmightbe. From my research I am leaning towards a used Canon XL2. My number one questions is, is this camera outdated or is it still a good camera? I don;t plan on needing any HD videos and from what I read the SD videotheXL2 takes is still going to be better than my handheld.
Eventually I would like to add a couple of external mics but other than that I don't think I need a lot of extras. Please let me know your thoughts and suggestions.
(p.s. using a mac with FCP7, so whatever I buy will need to becompatible.)
