I just got asked to videograph football games for a local football league here, because they're trying to get sponsorship in Dallas. Their last videographer did a poor job, so they didn't get the sponsorship. They're paying me $350 a game...it's one game a week. I can't give this up, basically. Now, I COULD use my 60D and my 70-200 or 100-400 and I could rent a second DSLR to help out, but the whole "can't autofocus while recording video" thing is really making me uneasy about whether that is the best choice, even though the quality of the video itself would be far above anything that a consumer cam could produce. But....I've been looking at prosumer camcorders that can give fairly high quality results with autofocus. I have generally been looking at Canons or some camera that takes SLR lenses, but those seem to be few and very expensive. I did come across an older cam, the Canon GL2, however, that seems to be promising...I think... It's SD, and it uses miniDV tapes (yaay...) so I'm not sure. If they don't require HD, is the SD quality of DV tapes good enough? Is this camera sufficient at low light? Are miniDV tapes evil? Are there any good digital camcorders that give decent quality results such as the GL2 supposedly does? The brand doesn't have to be Canon. Does Sony have a really good camcorder that can get the job done? Are their NEX video cameras any good with good AF since they are interchangeable lens cameras.
