I searched for a bit and did not find anything directly related to my question.
Can anyone recommend a sub-$1K AVCHD camcorder for use with PrE 9? I'm interested mainly in quality of footage and compatibility with editing software but there are probably other considerations that I need to be educated about.
I have a Canon Vixia HFS10 that I like... a LOT
I bought the Canon because it has a physically larger lens and a larger sensor for a greater pixel depth
I use an adapter to move the SD memory chip from camera to adapter and then plug that into a USB port
I copy only the MTS files to my hard drive, not the entire folder structure that seems to be needed with some other cameras
Thanks. That's the kind of info I'm looking for.
If you want the ultimate in image quality and can deal with MANUAL controls and poor ergonomics (for a video camera), get a Canon T2i DSLR
