I live in a rather rural area with low light pollution, and i need advice about purchasing a new digital video recorder. i need one that can take
photos, elapsed time exposure, video recording, excellent for night views, and space exploration . i'm not a rich man, and don't need anything too
pricey. i just need help heading in the right direction.
For night shots, generally the bigger the collector the better. That's why I would try to get a DSLR camera with HD video capabilities if you can
find one that fits your budget. Image stabilization is a definite plus for long exposures.
If you see any UFO's wave your arm wildly around when filming. I use a Sony handycam. For the price you really can't beat the quality. There are
some flaws with it but if your just starting out I would stick to a moderate range camera. There is a lot to learn about filming and while your
learning with your modest camera you can save for a nice one =).
Don't forget a nice tripod and video editing software. If I could go back in time i'd get me a nice tripod and a nice editing software and start
with a modest camera. You'll learn a lot by just using footage you took.
thanks for the input so far. i checked out some of those DSLR cameras with HD video capabilities, and as much as i would love to have one i might
have to save up a bit. i was actually just looking at that nikon camera. very nice.
