Hi, I would like to start making documentaries. I would like to use a camera that it is as compact as possible. I wonder if a camera like this one looks like a joke to you: http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/produ...ner-_-New_Item-_-Sony_TG5V_Handycam_Camcorder The $999 price, is not really that cheap for me either. Let's suppose you are starting to do some documentaries, what kind of camera would you use ?? A camera that could also be used for educational purposes, to record a lecture for example. A camera that may accept an external microphone and perhaps an external light. Thank you very much, kind regards, igmolinav.
