The “huh” was based on why somebody would WANT to deal with these issues, or a DOF kit with such a camera not lack of understanding of the technology. The HV30 obviously isn’t intended for major film/video or indie production where these, and other production elements exist and are important to the outcome of the project or story.
But for weddings and events, even some basic documentary/commerical work requiring high definition acqusition, the HV30 could provide a starting point for a “complete newbie” entering the ring.
Gerik says: “…but I want to get my hands dirty. I’m looking to buy a camcorder under $1,000 that will meet my needs. (“meet my needs” – key words here.)
“Basically, I’d buy a CHEAP (but he wants it to come in UNDER $1K) video camera and just start making movies – but I can’t see the point. I might make this amazing video which will be totally worthless because of the poor video quality. So, that’s what I’m going for. I want really good video quality, but I don’t need all sorts of extra features.” (Again, key words are, “I want really good video quality, but I don’t need all sorts of extra features.”)
