pranav manandhar 6 years ago hi guys, well i'm a total newbie in capturing video! I don't own a camcorder and i was planning to get one. I love photography and i was thinking of trying stuff in video too. I was wondering what would be a good cam for me, under $1000? I don't need professional high end cameras, just a hd camcorder with manual support in it will do. One question, are DSLR video feature better than that of consumer camcorder like Canon HV30? I mean dslr allows to set aperture and shutter speed and even change them while shooting but does consumer cameras allow to do that?? And i heard dslr cameras' image stabalizer is noo good at all. is that true? How does Canon HV30 compete with Canon 500d?? Please help me guys.
