    Buying a video camera...but what?

    Sorry I this is the wrong section for this question, but I also posted it in there.

    Feel like I'll get a quicker response here.




    I'm looking to buy something to record and make some edits with.

    Not big into cameras at all, I have a gopro but its the old 960 and that just doesnt cut it.


    Looking to spend around 200-300. I'm on a small budget, I know its not much and probably cant get anything too good with that amount of money.

    But if anyone knows of anything decent enough to start with until I can save up more and upgrade, please let me know.




    ...was thinking about buying the new GoPro HD Hero2, which the quality is 10x better than the current gopro I have, only because I have a 50% off coupon so I can get one for 150 instead of 300.
    But I'd like something to record with where I can actually see what I'm filming.

    I just upgraded to Hero2, but I haven't shot much yet. I can tell you that I never would have gotten the 960 in the first place. Loved my Hero1 so much so I can only assume that the HD2 will be better as they are claiming 2x overall improvements.

    No video from it yet, but this was a shot from my time lapse ride the other day. This is 11mp Wide.


    I say for your budget, get the gopro, skeleton housing, x grip, and a cheap shotgun mic.

      If you have a 50% off coupon, get the Hero2, and the little LCD back screen with the rest of your budget so you can see what you're filming. And probably another battery, because that screen rips through batteries.

          Thanks guys, yeah I figured I mid as well get the Hero2 since I do have the half off coupon.

          My buddy has the hero2 and some of the pictures he has taken are pretty good.

          Just figured gopro might not be the best for actual filming and making edits, but at the same time I dont know much about anything.

            Look at it this way. If you make money, then upgrade. But as far as edits go, GoPros get the job done.
