for the past year, I have been working on a web series using a Panasonic HVX 200. It's a really nice camera and all, but I find that it uses up a lot of space when I sump the footage and begin to edit. I shot it in 720p at 30 frames. I know that shooting in HD makes the files bigger, but I want to focus on doing short sketches for a comedy troupe and I feel like using the HVX is a little overkill.
I am an amateur at all this, so the answer might simply be to shoot in 480 on the HVX, but I just wanted to get some advice before I went out to buy a smaller camera.
