Looking for the best HD Camcorder/Camera for making a Short Film

Hi, my name is Douglas. I am looking for the best camcorder/camera for making a short film. I need something under $200.00. It would be GREATLY appreciated if you could find me something for $160.00 and under. Maybe a little bit over, but not that much. It doesn't have to have a mic input, but it would be preferred. I have found the Panasonic HC-V110, however, it doesn't seem all that great to me. Please help me, and reply ASAP.

  1. It isn't the best, but it's better than what I started out with making short films. Take a look at this guy.

    Hi Douglas - If you want to be able to produce image quality like this:

    Shallow depth of field like this:

    And timelapses like this:

    You might want to consider the Pentax Q interchangeable lens camera. This amazing camera is now on closeout for $200.

    You can get a refurbished Pentax Q in white or black for $180

    Or you can get a new one in white or black for $199.

    Either way, this camera will give you much better image quality than you can get from a camcorder in this price range. And, when budget permits, you can buy more lenses to create effects and "looks" that help to tell your stories better.

    Hope this is helpful!
