Question by Eric E: What is a good video camera for short films?
I am a short film maker in California, and I really need a better camera. I’ve been using a Sony DCR-SR62, but have been looking to upgrade for a while. I do not care about price, brand or size. I just need a better camera so that my short films come out looking their best. Thanks for any advice.
