I'm hoping that someone can offer advice on appropriate video camera choices. I want to record student teachers and post these videos on the web so that they can provide valuable feedback to one another. Here's what I believe is important (but feel free to correct me): Reasonable sound quality is essential; if we can't hear what the student teacher is saying, then there's just no point doing this. Obviously all video will be taken indoors in typical fluorescent lighting. The video quality doesn't have to be excellent, but of course I don't want it to be distractingly bad. I want to mount the camera on a tripod and just leave it alone -- no zooming or anything like that. I don't want to distract students by operating the camera in a conspicuous manner. I must be able to record for at least an hour without interruption. The easier and faster it is for me to upload video to the web, the better. I have absolutely no experience with video, and I'll have to do this about 30 times per semester, so time and ease are a pretty big deal. Big surprise, my school doesn't have the budget for anything really expensive. I don't know if I'm better off keeping things extremely simple (e.g., the Flip -- although I gather that this may not work well with Macs) or if it's worth investing in a video camera with a microphone terminal for the sake of better sound (e.g., the Canon FS10 or FS11). I'm very open minded and will appreciate any advice. Many thanks in advance for your help!
