So at the moment im in england i am studing a course called video and sound technology.I am loooking to by a camera for video mainly.My budget is around £500 but i am not sure what to get.I know i have few choices though.
So I am going to be using this camera mainly for my video projects to get more and more experiance with camera operating and later bringing it for editing it in avid software.
It's improtant to me that the camera will have a good quality video (film look) and also good audio recording quality or an input for external microphone.
So i am thinking of buying something within thease three categories :
Canon 600d or 700d
Nikon: d5100 or d3200
I like dslr becouse you can tweak a lot of the cameras setting and it will give a very high quality video.Also what i like in dslr's is lenses i was thinking of geting prime lens with dslr.
I have seen a lot of video fottage from go pro and the video quality is amazing.It's also very nice that there is a lot of mounts and i could attach it to anything.It also waterproof and very usefull for complex shots and diffucult scenes.I could take it anywhere with me but the problem is that i dont know if i would get too much camera operating experiance with it I dont know if i re able to tweak its settings.
I was also thinking of getting a camcorder of course a hd one sony or panasonic one maybe canon i am not sure.I have heard that for the bugdet that i have it's not worth beocuse i am not going to get such high quality like dslr but the thing is that camcorders are made for video and dslr more for photography so i am not sure.
Thank you all for reading this post.
Any suggetions in what camera i should buy for 500 pounds would be greatfull.
