Like the last post, I too am looking into the idea of Wedding/Event videography. I am an amerture looking to go into this. I asked where to take some videography classes and am told everyone starts out like I am. I have a video camera Sony DCR-TRV720, (Digital8) but is a consumer camera with one CCD, so wouldn’t do for professional type work. I have talked to a couple of people on other forums, and they like the Canon XL1, and some others don’t. Camera looks good, but not sure. I notice too that others are using ones with the LCD screen like mine has. I guess that this makes it easier to use to watch than the viewfinder. Any help would be appreciated. Can’t afford to spend too much money, which would hopefully be around $1000 Please help if you know of any video classes you may also know of too.
