      Hi guys.

      Videography has always been a dream of mine and I finally decided to make the finical commitment into the business. I have a budget of S1,500 to $2,000 for a camera. I’m actually looking at ebay for a used XL1s.

      The camera will be used for weddings, commercials, independent films etc. I would like to stay on the low end of $1,500 as possible. Your advice and opinions on the matter from personal experience will be greatly appreciated.

      Thanks

      For a camera retailing at around $3,500, it looks like you’re definitely getting a good deal, particularly from sites displayed during a Google product search. Before making your decision with eBay, I’d seriously take a look at some other options that turned up during my online research. For someone who’s in need of a good, solid, standard definition camcorder with packed features, it’scertainly worth the shot.

      Unless you are absolutely stuck on Canon I would look at the Panasonic HMC-40. At B&H it’s right under $2000 and uses SDHC cards instead of tape. If I have the money that’s what I would buy…
