the best handheld digital camcorder to shoot
small-time movie with?
Preferably UNDER $1000* I really want to
get into film production and I figured I
would test the water - you have to start
somewhere, right? I'm looking mostly for
1) high picture quality and 2) ability to
execute simple cinematic effects like focusing
in and out on an object. I may show it to
the admissions directors at UCLA as part
of my "portfolio" when applying
to the film school next year, so I really
would like it to look professional as possible.

you want the best under $1000, look for
a 3ccd camcorder.
you really want to get that "film
look", you'll have to pay more money.
you'll need something that will shoot
in 24p. A new Panasonic DVX will cost
you about $3500, but you can find cheaper
ones on Ebay.
