I switched to still photography many years ago. But a friend of mine asked for recommendations for a video camera for his teenage son who was interested in making movies. I haven't got a clue as to what to recommend. Any advice on cameras and any reputable places to buy a used one?
I got a panasonic FZ35 point and shoot camera last year and it takes really good video, in addition to taking good stills. I also have a canon vixia HD video cam that I never use anymore because the panasonic is so much more versatile. The canon cost twice as much too!
