A professional cameraman may laugh at this, but I like using camcorders for my filming in news and documentary. Over the last three years of filming, I have used the Sony HDR-CX390 and HDR-CX625 and it has saved my life countless of times.
Whenever I get asked about a starter camera I tend to recommend them from here;
So why do I use this for my filming work? What are the merits and demerits?
I am a documentary/News cameraman based in London.
