Please help me choose a camcorder
Jul 3, 2014

Here are my requirements - I appreciate any recommendations!

- #1 use: Video-recording depositions (testimony under oath) in a conference room

- #2 use: Family videos (aka "home movies")

- Must be able to use AC power from the wall for longer (up to 6-7 hours) recordings

- Looks semi-professional/businesslike, and not like a lower-end consumer camera

- Must shoot well with available indoor light (I don't want to add lighting in the conference room)

- 4K not necessary (probably outside my price point)

- I need to buy it within 30 days.  Would rather buy a newly-released model than one out for 12-18 months, but I can't figure out what's on the horizon.

- Budget: $500-1000 USD preferred, but have some flexibility

- I have a good tripod already

- Recording format(s) that are relatively easy to edit

Thanks again for thoughts from the group!
