I'm selling my hmc40, it has low hours and is in excellent condition. The extras include an Opteka fisheye, Audio technica condenser microphone, tripod, and a Panasonic 8gb sdhc card. It also comes with all the original accessories which are the HMC handbook, remote, battery charger/ adapter, rca cables, etc. I recently upgraded to DSLR so I no longer need this and I want to see it get used rather than collect dust. Asking $1,000 for everything, email me if interested.

I am seeking advice, I know it is a tired conversation.


I own a Canon XL2 and two Sony HDR XR160's.


All I do is record training videos for my company. The videos are nothing special, just in the office. I do use good lighting and no fancy shots. I edit with Sony Vegas Pro (13). All videos are viewed on the Internet. 


THE QUESTON IS - CAN I USE THECANON XL2 and is it a viable camera in todays HD world.

I recently got a job as a contracted videographer. The camera that my company provided me with is a Sony HDR-CX190. It's honestly a cheap/lower end camera that would be useful for home videos and that's about it. I'm currently looking to purchase a new camera/camcorder for personal use as well as work and I'd like some input on which direction I should go in. I'm debating getting a DSLR camera that I could also use as a camcorder but I'm not sure which ones will have the best quality.

Panasonic's New 4K Camera and Its Startling Price

There is little doubt that the dawn of 4k video is now upon the industry. Camera manufacturer’s and post-production workflows are now going through the growing pains of introducing a higher resolution, much like the transition from standard definition video to high definition. One certainty the consumer can count on is that as new products roll out, the costs of 4K camera equipment and gear will decrease as it enters every corner of the market. One such example is the new Panasonic Lumix FZ1000K which will sell for $899.
