The new camera

I went out and bought a new HD video camera.  I have loved my Kodak Zi8 but it’s just a pocket camera and I wanted a zoom lens so I had to go looking around.  Having an external microphone input is important so that narrowed my options and raised the price about $100.  I was in The Source while in Regina and saw that they had a Canon Vixia HF R200 that has a 28x zoom, external microphone jack and took two SD cards and was on sale.  After heading home, doing my research, I decided to pick one up.  The Source also had Class 10 16 GB SDHC cards on for $50 off which made it an even better deal.

Canon Vixia HF R200It is going to be used for a couple of projects that I will talk about later in addition to shooting some video for Mark’s football team next year.  While I may not be Ed Sabol, I hope to have some fun with it.
