Someone here is looking for a video camera-- please help
Jul 4, 2014

The Other Old Pentaxian is looking for an inexpensive dedicated video camera, primarily to make videos of small objects with equally small moving parts-- think watches, small model engines, that kind of thing.  I think a small tripod is also planned, but image stabilization is a must for hand held work

I know this is outside the scope of these forums, but we are talking digital imaging here, so I hope I can get away with stretching a point.  I'm sure at at least some of you have video cameras and know quite a bit about them. Perhaps you could suggest a model, or at least a brand that would be good for this kind of work?  Budget is pretty small, perhaps $200 US tops?
