Can someone help me answer a question? I own the Sony FX7; and the instruction manual says that the camera should not be pointed directly at the sun, and that doing so can result in damage to the unit. But lots of videos have shots of the sun in them. In fact, videomaker's Tips and Tricks has an instructional video on shooting the sun. Is there really a risk of damaging my camera? If so, what needs to be done to prevent the damage? Thanks!
I'm looking to buy a camera, and I can't decide from consumer and pro. The Canon hV30 looks good, but I'd prefer the sony Hvr-hd1000u. Does anyone know a place where I could buy a used pro cam? I'm opened to any suggestions.
Thanks in advance,

I have a JVC Everio GZ-MG555, and need a good mic that I can mount on my camera. I'll be talking into it, but I will also be shooting skateboarding videos very often. I know VERY little about this stuff. So what you recommend?

I have Sony camera HVR-HD1000E. I'm filming events and i need to move from one place to another while filming. It's very hard, because camera is connected to laptop via i.Link (aka IEEE 1394) and i need to move laptop too.
This is schema how it works now. I searching way how to move freely and send video and audio from camera to laptop wirelessly.
Is there any chance to find solution? Any suggestions how to make this possible? What gear i need?
Takinga different view fromEarlC's comments http://videomaker.com/community/forums/topic/current-posts-common-theme
I thought I would approach all these "I am just starting out. What would be the bestest, cheapest, easiest, effortless, work in all environment and low light level camera I can buy?" questions from a different angle. Maybe by doing this we could answer a lot of those questions before they get asked? It goes something like this...
I'm tryingto create a company specializing in the production of music video, I try to make a choice between the Sony Z7, Ex1 and the Panasonic HPX 300. Help me please to choose which one could give me a quality such as these clip?
it would also be really useful to know a little about these lights, or whatever you feel is relevant! thank you in advance!
