What camera ...
We are looking to upgrade our video camera this year for a digital one (or one that uses DVDs ---- and I know I am showing my ignorance here). The one we have is almost 10 years old and uses the small tapes that you put into a converter and play in a VCR (yeah, imagine that one).
I film a few of hubby's hunts and then I film pet shows, goat shows, lamb shows, dance recitals, and have tried to get volleyball and basketball games on film for a friend who has two daughters (the grandfather is paralyzed so I try to get a little bit of everything the grand-babies do on tape so he can see it). I noticed that the goat and lamb show was horrible on the sound this year and took that to mean we need a new camera but I am unsure of what I shoule be looking for. And I don't want to spend mucho money for one. I know you get what you pay for but I am by no means going professional or anything. Just good quality home video stuff. Any suggestions?
