digital video

    I am a novice when it comes to digital video. I took a TV production class in college about a year before the department introduced digital video as a replacement for VHS equipment.

    Anyway, I am interested in investing in some digital video equipment primarily for family-related movies. I have enough skill to create some high-end family videos and even some low-end professional-type productions.

    I don't want to spend a ton of money on a camera until I become more comfortable with how it works. But I also don't want to be cheap crap that won't last or do what I need it to do.

    So I'm looking for any advice as to what I need to consider when shopping for a video camera. Essentially, I'm hoping to move past all of the technical jargon to determine what really matters. The file format? The hard drive space? The zoom capabilities? Is there an issue with video quality?

    In the meantime, I'm going to browse some sites and see what sort of info is available.

    "Family-related movies" sounds like a poor euphemism, Heineken.

    Quality isn't as important as making sure you hide the camera well. She may have stage fright.

    Don't worry. After all the money shots to the cornea, she's blind as a bat.
