    HDV Cameras

    Hi guys, new on here so please be gentle. Need to purchase two of the above and compatible tape deck. What are the best best and who's the cheapest to get them off. Must be able to edit on Mac.

    Basics - if it is ONLY going to be for distribution on the web, then you probably don't need HD - particularly if it will be internet based. As for editing on a mac, you probably want something with firewire output.

    As for best - depends on your budget - you could end up paying a few £thousand for broadcast quality - or you could use a 3 CCD Sony camera which would give near broadcast quality - maybe a few £hundred. Again probably overkill, but if you keep the masters good, you can always compress it down later.

    In the semi-professional area, Sony are big names - but you really need to go to some specialist AV company for advice if you are spending that sort of money.
