I am looking to purchase a new video camera and
could use some expert advice. I video tape stock car racing at a small
asphalt track. The lighting is always an issue. I currently use a Canon
GL2, but the picture is not as clear as I would like. I have 2 GL2s
and I have had to send them to Canon service multiple times to have the
dv in connection repaired—at $400 a pop, that cuts into profits

Oh, and I want to stick with the miniDV tapes. I record to a
portable hd, but I like to have the tapes as a back up. I edit with
Adobe Premiere CS3. I Also have an audio mixer on the camera that I
plug into the mixer board to pick up the announcer.
Thanks for any help you can give me.
Keep in mind that I kind of got thrown into this gig with no previous
video experience. My brother set me up with all my equipment and
showed me how to set it up and use it, that’s about all I know!
