Generally speaking, it appears that the vast majority of posters here are into video for reasons OTHER than making money. This is NOT an indictment. I only note my observation because most posts seem to be about a hobby, fun, experimental, creative or entertainment project and not so much about how to generate income with your video efforts. I ask similar and related questions from time-to-time but thought it might be time to inquire once again. What is MOST important to you regarding your video endeavors?
There are a LOT of forum members. Some VERY active, others not so, and many, many more simply lurk, read, catch and release. Not to find fault with ANY type of forum member, from casual user to dedicated poster/responder, but I sure wish a HUGE number of us would respond to this post/poll and give us all a better idea of how the forums work for you. Thanks.
I dropped my Sony DCR-HC 52 (uses Mini-DV tapes) in the Dismal Swamp in Virginia, gone forever. Had it for 5 years, loved it, only problem: no external mike input. Time for a new/used one
Mostly I do family documentaries, volunteer work, etc. So I haven't kept up very much with the developments since last purchase...such as HD, AVHD, etc.
