I really would appreciate any assistance. After 12 years I am going to upgrade my DV cameras and editing station. As many of you will understand, I need to do this as affordably as possible.
Any thoughts on Panasonic’s AG-HMC80 for documentary and corporate work? This would be replacing my DSR 200A. At a cost of about $1800 the price is definitely right. (BTW, anyone know of a better price)?
Pulling a key. The AG-HMC80 uses MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 encoding. How well does this codec key compared with DV 4:1:1?
Can Adobe Premiere 2.0 work with MPEG-4 AVC/H.264?
I also need an affordable handheld replacement for my VX1000 to compliment the PanaAG-HMC80 to be used on a jib. Any suggestions?
PC. I need to upgrade my pc. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated here. I need to stick with XP as I have several thousand dollars in software that I want to continue using. Any models, specs and/or resellers would be VERY helpful.
I know that this is a lot to ask. Thanks again everyone.
