I’m heading overseas in the next year or so and want to make a short documentary on a particular topic.
What I want is to get some kind of weatherproof and rugged video camera with a decent resolution and decent features.
I was thinking of an action camera like the Olympus Stylus TG Tracker but it’s only 8 MP and I’m not sure if it’s too small for what I want to do. Need good picture and sound.
The camera will need to be able to film for a decent length of time and run for a decent length of time. As compact as possible.
I don’t suppose anything comes to mind? I was thinking of getting a good action cam for this but they just don’t seem to record for long enough.
Thought I would ask the experts.
