So, I want to improve my YouTube videos, and am preparing to splash out the cash and buy a Sony HDR-CX190 to start producing videos with.
I'm looking for the camera to work nicely static, and to be fairly simple to take images on and off, as well as a longish battery life. 1080p is desired.
Do you think the camera would be up to the task? If not, could you suggest any others?
U.T. – I'd spend a few more dollars and get a Canon Vixia HF R300 for $295 at Amazon. 51x zoom, mic and headphone jacks. The mic jack will allow you to put a mic closer to your subject – which will significantly improve your sound. Headphones will allow you to monitor what you're recording.
It can produce video like this (make sure to watch in 1080p):
Hope this is helpful,
i would buy a DSLR for $1500
