I need a recommendation for the best budget AVCHD camcorder, both in SD and in HD.
My friends are going to film a bunch of speakers, and then send me the raw data on DVD’s. They just plan to put a camcorder on a tripod, attach a simple clip-on lav mic, and then shoot. Then they plan to dump the data to a DVD, and then do that again for eight days. Then I will pick up the pieces from here.
My friends are clueless about three-point lighting and all that, and I don’t want to overload them. I just need to give them a simple recommendation about which AVCHD camcorder and clip-on lav mic they can get, on a budget.
Thanks very much for your help.
