I will need a HD-camcorder with the following properties:
# a video camcorder with a standard filter thread (the "native" filter thread of the Nu-View is 37 mm, ask for an adapter-ring if required)
# the filter thread of the cam shouldn't be a moving part (there are some older cameras where lens and filter-thread rotate while focusing)
# the autofocus system of the camera should work through the lens, external IR-sensors may be blocked by the Nu-View adapter
# the camcorder is required to have a composite video-out jack which is active during recording
# the camcorder must be able to record in standard interlace format NTSC, PAL or Secam
# progressive-scan on the camcorder must be disabled
Sony HDR-HC1 probably works but it seems to be way too expensive for my budget. Is there
a HD-camera that uses the same recording format as HDR-HC1 and has all the properties I
listed above with a price tag of under $500? It's extremely important that the camera
has a composite (yellow) video-out jack which is active during recording. The camera must
also support interlacing recording. I'll need to put a 37 mm NuView adapter to it so the
camera must also support this. A good image and sound quality is also a good thing.
PS. The camera probably shouldn't use MPEG-4. According to
http://stereo3d.com/stereocam.htm: "The camcorders get smaller and lighter.
Some even don't have a filter mount anymore. There will be digital camcorders which use
progressive scan and compression technologies such as MPEG4 which destroy the 3D-information."
