Yes, I did read the extremely helpful post by the knowledgable MistaWondaBread! I am looking to begin filming my adventures more this season. This means both my fishing endeavors on small WI streams as well as all aspects of whitetail hunting. I want to be able to have quality still photos as well as premier HD video. I have been looking at cameras and video cameras and still don't have much clarity on what model to buy, however, I want to buy this week. I am looking at $1,000 being the very max of my budget. Can I simply buy a camera or a videocamera and it shoot good enough video/stills or will I need to buy both? Also, what other accessories would I want to buy to pair with the camera/video camera to be ready to film from the stand. All in all, what should I buy? Thank you in advance for your help.
