It's been ages since I have even looked into video cameras so I'm totally lost as to what to get. I'd like to make a few YouTube videos and was thinking about buying a 1080p video camera to do all my recording. Back in the day when I kinda knew a bit about video cameras the ones that used MiniDV tapes were meant to be better quality than AVCHD video cameras. Is that still the case? Or is there a better type of video camera available these days than AVCHD based ones? I'm looking for the best value for money really so if an AVCHD video camera is the best bang for the buck then I guess I might as well get one. Has anyone else done YouTube videos and what do you use if you have? Thanks for any help.
