A flash would be useless for video, it would have to flash for each frame (either 25 or 50 times every second) and be accurately synchronised with the camera shutter. A few camcorders do have a built in flash, but they can only be used for still photographs.Question: Dont any of the HD cameras have built in flashes? I was looking through jessops and on the features they all say no to built in flash.
Some camcorders do have built in lighting. it's really only suitable for close up work as they are of limited power. You can easily add one to your camcorder if it has an accessory shoe, or use a bracket with one on it connected to the tripod socket.Thanks Terfyn. Nice little info you put there.
grahamlthompso you just made me realize that i had asked something that doesn't go with camcorders,The word i should of used is light instead of flash,So when its used indoors it gives some light in a darken room.
There is only one camera in the Panasonic range that uses 3 sensors and that is the 920.(DYOR) The rest use one sensor. I would suggest the HC-V770 EB which is going on Amazon for £399, I have the older 750 and it is an excellent camera.with Pana being marginally more expensive because they use 3-CMOS sensors whereas Budget camcorders don't -
