      What camera model are you using?

      If you can shoot in it, and much of this is all subjective IMHO, then virtually any of the high definition resolutions will give you something distributable. The quality of the video and audio, framing, lighting, etc. is going to have more of a bearing on a perception of “professional movie” production than resolution and final distribution.

      OK –

      Read the specs for the camera – You want to record in High Definition (1280 X 720). The standard def modes are 640 X 480 and smaller so these will not be very useful since SD is 720 X 480.

      It records in Quicktime format (MOV) using H.264 compression so you’ll need some decent power on your computer to edit.

      You’ll be able to record about five minutes for every GB of flash memory you have so you will be a little limited in that area as well.

      What software (non-linear editor) are you using? I don’t know if all of them support MOV with H.264 so check that out before plunking down money.

      actually i convert the MOV file to AVI and then import it to premiere

      sometimes the audio is missing.
