So I'm looking to buy a relatively cheap HD camera for freelance work. By "relatively cheap," I mean that I'm looking for one that's preferably less than $1,000, but up to $1,200 is acceptable.
Some other things I'm looking for:
-Not total garbage, obviously. It has to be prosumer quality or better. Professional quality is preferred, but I'm not sure that I can get anything good at my price range.
-Tapeless preferred, but not required.
-If possible, it would be nice if there's at least an attachment available for it that will let me mount it to my shoulder, a la the Cannon GL-1.
Do any suggestions come to mind?
Side note: Is this the right forum section for this sort of thing?
