This is my second post here. Actually its the first one that everyone gets to read because my first one was removed for violating some obscenity laws. I have been filming "wrestling" video's for about 5 years but know very little about the actual cameras. I will be buying my first camera and the one I am looking at is called a Sony HVR-V1U 1080p. With my limited knowledge my research led me to that camera. Has anyone got any experience with that camera? Is there a better type of camera for this type of films? My budget is $5k US. Basically I am the "wrestler" and I am "fighting" as well as filming the action. So this type of "wrestling" video is called "gonzo wrestling". Also can be thought of as your in the action or at least filming up close with other wrestlers. It's also not scripted so we just let things flow. I apologize for "dumbing down" or making my post sound like it was written for small children to read but my original post was removed and I was asked to use alternate words for certain things.
Thanks for reading
