CANON S100 HD video - documentary quality?
Jan 23, 2012

I travel alot and had a few questions about the Canon S100 that shoots 1080 HD video.

1) Would it be good enough quality to shoot a TV type of doco?

2) Or to edit S100 HD footage into a doco that had HD footage from far superior camera like the Canon 5D? Would the change in quality be very noticable?

3) For questions 1 & 2, if not, why not? What is the technical stuff I need to know? Compression? Lenses?

4) What is the best kind of tripod or monopod for a point and shoot camera like this?
thanks for your attention.
