I'm looking for a good video camera to record videos for yotube of people singing and interviews with people. I recently purchased a Panasonic HDC-SD60 after reading many reviews only to find that it didn't have an external mic input. So, I want to sell it and I will get £250-300 and buy another camera that does have external mic input. Ideally, it should cost around £300 but I'm willing to take suggestions for cameras that are a bit more expensive.

Thanks for your help,
Lozza.

If it's for the internet, the cheapest camera you can find will do just fine. Why pay for quality images and sound when you don't need them? My suggestion is to check Ebay or the Classified ads to find the cheapest camera you can get then save the rest of your money for when you NEED a quality camera.


I'll also suggest that you go to this site: http://realfilmcaree....php?topic=55.0 and scroll down to "Equipment/Filmmaking Procedures" as this type of question has been asked many times. You'll also find similar answers over at filmmaking.net.
