Tim75 5 years ago Currently I am orientating for a camcorder in Nepal. Please see below very convient some info. WHAT? People (interviews) and landscape while trekking -- some low-light conditions, mostly during day-light. WHERE? Trekking in Nepal: note that it should weight extremely less (< 1KG) -- everything will be carried by self. CURRENTLY Having a Sony HX9V, interesting quality related to the weight, yet fails with switching off AF and more importantly an external microphone. Also thought of finding a comparable camera. THINKING OF A DSLR (a 550D is in my collection too) or a GoPro Hero2 add-on. Maybe you can ask some better questions I wouldn't think of. It's an amateur production.
