Question by artislove81: What is the best camcorder for making short films?
I’ve researched a bit and found out from many people that a hard drive camcorder is the best to get for editing on the camera as well as on my computer. but i’m not certain that it will perform as well as they say it will.
so what is the best camcorder for making short films? and for editing on a computer?
Answer by iridflare
Editing in the camera is a painful way of wasting time, and the MPEG-2 format, used in HDD camcorders, is a poor choice for editing in any case. You can make short films using any sort of camcorder, but MiniDV gives the best quality and ease of editing. “Colin” is getting a lot of press right now – that was shot on a couple of consumer grade MiniDV camcorders.
