i'm intending to get a good camcorder/camera/professional video camera.
however i have a low budget and little experience.
my main purpose is to shoot quality video, for documenting, just like national geographic.
everytime i go around ask the salesman they have no idea what i'm requesting, they'd probably twist and turn and try to promote their product. (actually i prefer second hand)
some qualities might include, motion stability, megapixels... wide angle?
also, as a side question, for a common digital camera, will it maintain its quality if i were to take a video with it?
e.g. if i were to take a 1000fps video with http://exilim.casio.com/products_exfs10.shtml
also, i'm looking for a good video taking tool below 500
