Hey everyone,

I just got sponsored by a company who wants me to be there Director of Social Media. I will be their host and tape at a lot of events. (basically being mobile and interviewing/talking to people). He asked me to let him know what HD camera and lighting we should buy

There are two options: (DOESN'T HAVE TO BE SONY)

1. Money is no concern - we want the most high quality equipment

* What HD camera should the company buy

2. Cost effective model - we're trying to save money

* What HD camera should the company buy

Can you guys let me know what you recommend for the two options?

I've been looking at the Sony XR500V for a low cost option. what do you think of that one?

(I've just been using a regular DV camera and a really old mic so I don't know too much about this stuff).

Thanks soooo much!
