Hello, i am a young filmmaker that needs a new camera. I wanted a Canon Vixia HV40, but i dont have a firewire port on my laptop. I want an HD camera that easy to use but has features that i can control the exposure and white balance to make my movies look better. I want to pay under 1000, so i have money left for other things, but i thought i would come here because i know the people on this forum are very knowledge full and have all been in my place at some point in their life. so if anyone can tell me the name of a decent priced HD Camcorder thats good for yong filmmaker, Thank you!
The camera you should get should always be the one that best fits your budget and needs.
I’ve found that the Canon Vixia M32 has all the basics plus a nice range of capabilities that suit it for a lot of pro work. The M32 has 64 Gb of on-board memory, SD card slot, jacks for external mics and headphones, simple viewscreen interface, very good image quality and manual modes that let you control as much as you want. The camera is about the size of a pop can and light. I’m still finding useful capabilities that I didn’t know it had when I bought it.
B&H Photo has the M32 on sale for about $600 — about $400 bucks off of MSRP.
Oh thanks, i will look into that, it sounds like a good camera for me, thank you!
