Time To Get Filming Again

Trying to come up with inspiration for another short video...

Done a whole lot of research on video cameras too and have my eye on a particular model.

Another Sony and mini-dv as well. I like the tape format and it still captures the best images.

The big differences for me will be widescreen (16:9) mode and High Definition.

The model I want... A Sony HDR HC9

Mini DV - Still Looking For Camcorders

I'm on (i'm in Australia and our format is PAL... has camcorders in NTSC format) looking for an older new or used 3ccd camcorder.

Something like the Canon XM2 or the Sony VX2100...

And to get off topic... heard another "quote of the day"

"He's the type of guy who would use cloning so he could have gay sex with himself!"

More On High Definition Camcorders...

I went into my local hi-fi store as they are noted for good deals on electronics, but not a specialist for video cameras so I still do my own research.

I have been thinking about hard disk drive camcorders as my old mini-dv tapes (which were supposed to last forever) seem to jump an skip all over the place.

At least going straight to digital file I can possibly avoid that problem.

The camcorder that caught my eye was the Sony HDR SR11.

60GB of storage space and High Definition recording...

but... still researching

Youtube Video Success - Most Discussed

Over 1.4 million views but what makes this video different is that it tops the list at 305,000 + comments. "Macedonia is Greece" is a video that sparks fiery debate within the Greek and Macedonian community.

So tip number 9 for topping youtube video is to make comment on a topic that is emotionally charged, highly debated and raises national pride!

Here's how the creator describes himself:

"This video explains the truth behind Macedonia and Alexander the Great and shows how they are both Greek. "
