Video Camera query **Shawn Carlock??**

I am just in the process of upgrading my video camera, I want to get some better footage of long range but also close in stuff.

My existing camera has 10x optical and has 3cccd technology, I feel a bit limited by the zoom.

Just wondering what you guys and Shawn are using??

It seems that with high zooms you get crap picture quality.

am now looking towards a Sony SR10E High definition with 15x optical

Any advice appreciated

Rgds, Steve

    Find a high optical zoom, and stay away from the high digital zoom. The "crappy" image comes form the use of digital zoom. Optical zoom actually brings the image "closer", while the digital zoom blows up the existing image.....blow it up to far and you start to gat a pixxilated (sp)picture. Blurry. As far as holding the camera steady, which is critical in high zoom situations....you got me. It seems like any vibration caused by the driver, the wind, what ever.... , makes the image look like krap.

    I know that I am probably stating the obvious. Hope that helps!

    Have just tried a Sony SR45E with 40x Optical but the picture is nothing flash, I used a good tripod, just seems a little washed out looking and fuzzy. perhaps I am too fussy

    The high end ones top out at about 10x unless you want to go professional then your talking 2 ta 3 thousand. Shawn uses a pretty plain jvc if I remember correctly. The digital zoom sucks and the better the sensor the better the picture.
