I am a student film maker and I have one camera already. It is a canon XL2 and my brother and I are using it for making movies for contests, a personal feature length project, and a documentary. I (we) want to start making money (or at least have fun trying) by filming events, converting VHS to DVD, several other random things, and maybe doing a small video series with our youth pastor.
I wouldn’t feel comfortable filming an event without two cameras so I was thinking of getting another one. Should I get the same exact camcorder that I have (XL2) or should I get a different one for variety? I’m pretty sure I want a MiniDV camcorder but not completly. As for costs, I can’t get anything more expensive than an XL2 and I don’t even have the money for one yet.
Thanks for the help!
