I don't know what camera to get... I cannot afford more than 1,000 dollars. I want something with mic inputs and I prefer to get something that is the size of pd150, I like the larger cameras. What camera could I get that is about that size with a mic input for under 1000?????? Thanks
I would say, do some fundraising, or try to get a lease / loan. For a $1000.00, you will get a home camcorder and will probably hate yourself for ever making the purchase, especially if you know what a more expensive camcorder / camera can do...
Do you have any community media centers in your area ?
These are the greatest resource for free gear.
Your other option is to try the grey market, but that's also a great gamble.
