ahah you're all so quick to label this guy as ignorant, and a dumbass who shouldn't be buying a camera of this caliber. first of all, theres no tryout for buying a camera, thats the benifit of a free country. if this guy has 3-4000 that he wants to spend on a camera, who are you to say he shouldn't do that? i mean, i could be wrong and all you guys could be poser-bouncers at camera stores or something, but im fairly sure he can do whatever he wants lol. secondly, maybe this guy actually does know what he's doing and is trying to find options that he overlooked or didnt see when he was looking. maaybe he's trying to get suggestions without leading the answers in a certain direction. maybe he is an ignorant douche, who knows. but this is a pretty small issue to shit all over this guy for ahah. you went out of your way to trash this guy, who you dont know, on an opinion that doesnt seem to be based on any fact, its a little pathetic ahah.
side note - i have nothing to contribute to your camera situation, guy, sorry ahah.
Okay first of all, these are three completely different cameras - no offense, but you pretty much posted here that you don't know jack shit. Just saying.
Anyway, lets be serious now - what's your experience level? You need to realize that money and a nice camera don't make you a good videographer. It takes practice with both the camera and the motion and the shots to make one.
So if you've never shot anything besides with a Handycam, then maybe think about something more like a GL2 or HV30 to get you started, and either use the rest of the money on accessories - a good tripod is key - or save it for when you know what you're doing and should actually step up to a camera of HVX caliber.
(Yes, I just recommended a GL2 because it's a good starter camera with basic but educational manual controls. I can feel the force telling me I'll get dumped on but whatever).
As for right now, do your research. At this point, are you READY for a camera like the HVX? ...more importantly, is your computer ready? Because if you're comparing that to a TRV (I don't think Sony even makes those anymore) then you've really done a spotty job on research. If you're going to drop this much money on a cam, make sure you know what you want and that it's good for you, just saying.
Good luck man. Feel free to PM me if you think I can be of any further assistance.
Explain your point. I don't mean to antagonize you in multiple threads, but seriously, why do you insist on trying to be such a sophisticated asshole?
So anyways, why CANT this kid buy whatever camera he wants? There are plenty reasons why he SHOULDNT, but to be an asswhole about it is just as bad as making an ignorant thread - if not worse.
