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?
