I'm looking to start a channel and I want to buy a camera for it. What I'm looking at filming would be indoors in a controlled environment with a tripod and good lighting set up. It will mostly be closer up shots. Think "filming your hand from a few feet away." I will be putting music over, so sound will not be an issue. I want to keep the budget pretty low. I'm looking at maybe the 200-300 range. I could spend more if its critical, but I'm thinking I should be able to get away with that. I dont know if I'd be better off with a dslr or a camcorder.

You obviously want a camera with macro and zoom.

I use a Nikon L820 and it works very well.

You can pick these up secondhand for about $80 AU. Shoots 1080P.

I also have a $680 Lumix FZ300 but prefer the Nikon. It's just easier to use and has a good auto focusing system.

Cheers Rob
