**If you have an opinion on anything I discuss, please post below because every "vote" counts in my decisions going forward.**
My Goal: To shoot small / short film projects to upload to the internet and burn to DVD. (I would also like to do some still photography on the side, whether it is with the camera I buy or a separate still camera---this is factoring into my decision somewhat, but I want to focus on video.)
Note: I have Adobe Premiere Pro CS4 (the production package with after effects, etc..)
I'm urgently in the market for new video equipment. Working on a documentary shoot, and I need to decide from a few options. The documentary will include interior shooting, natural daylight shooting, and occasionally night shooting. I've worked with Sony before, and their auto features have been super helpful, but the camera I've been using has no audio input, and thus, the audio has been professionally unusable.
i am looking to buy my first prosumer/ professional camcorder and these 2 camcorders have come up a lot.
I will mainly be using it for school work.
Does anyone have any suggestions as to which one i should get?
I am new on this forum and I'm starting film school in a couple of weeks. One of the materials I will need for this semester is, of course, a camera.
but I can use another camcorder as long as it can perform the same tasks or more.
I have not yet seen any comparisons between these two cameras. I know, they're both brand new on the market and there hasn't been much time to do a real in-depth analysis. So without having them in my hands, here are just a small sampling of the differences I've seen online that might tip the scales toward one or the other:
Sony: about two grand
Canon: about two grand
Canon: 2 XLR's
Sony: single stereo 1/8" jack

Hey, I am new to videography, and I am looking into buying a camera. I was going to buy a traditional HD camcorder like the Canon Vixia hf S200,but keep hearing that this Canon rebel T2i is a great buy for a great price. The rebel is in my budget range, so I'm wondering should I get it? or is there something better out there for the around the same price. I am not on a professional level yet, so I'm just looking for something that takes great HD video. Any suggestions for that price range?
