I can tell you that the GZ-HD7U is a nice camera, but I too am not sure if this camera is good enough for what you want to do. I am too new in the field of Videography that I do not know.
My question is how do you plan on managing your data files after shooting? do you plan on archiving the TOD or the converted media format whatever it is. I use Final Cut and I have to go with Quicktime Media to avoid having to render my clips everytime I change something.
I don’t know if you got this fixed yet, but what I have been doing to get the videos off if this camera is attach it as an external HD, drop the .tod files into a folder and then, on a Mac I use MPEG Streamclip to convert the file to a Quicktime Movie. Tha’s pretty much it. I am not sure if the .tod should be archived or the .mov, but I do know that the .tod is smaller and could be archived to DL DVD.
Please inform me if I am doing this wrong. Also, not to get off subject, but is this DVC good enough to sell stock video footage?
The GZ-HD7U has a controllable focus ring, does the HV-20 or HV-30? I am still not sure if I want to do HDD or MiniDV… such a tuff choice.
…Maybe an HV-20 might be in your range, awesome HD, shoots to MiniDV and makes a good tape deck when you become more rich and famous. Me, I shoot an HX-A1 Canon and am continually amazed at how well it works. Robin Edwards Producer, San Francisco
are you referring to the Canon HV-20. The HV-30 is the predecessor right? Is the HV-20 still available? Also, should I get extra lenses and what not? I am also looking for an LED hot shoe video light. Would this be a good way to go?
is the Sony hdr sr12 good in low light?
Thank you all…
Well, I found out that my budget is $700 so now I don’t know what to do… Sony sounds good, does it work well with Final Cut Pro?
I am a newbie, but aren’t Sony DVCs not compatible with Final Cut Pro? I am in the same boat as far as being in the market for a DVC and I don’t have a huge amount to spend in my budget.
