Times are hard!

I want to buy a HD Camcorder to shoot stock footage and sell on the net.

What camera can I buy that is the cheapest but good enough quality to fulfill the requirements for stock footage?
Do I need to go prosumer or is there anything on the market to get away with consumer???
Any advice or tips greatly appreciated?:lease:

Not sure if you want tape or avchd but whichever a reasonable consumer cam would do what you want.

What kind of market is your video destined for, i.e. what kind of end use? Broadcast? Web video? Promotional / corporate video? What kind of subjects are you thinking of shooting?

The stock footage would be external gv's...
London Eye, Big Ben, Mountains etc.
It would have to be to TV broadcast standard.
ie HD 1080, possibly shot progressive if the feature is available.

Not all HD is created equal . . .

If the video needs to be broadcast standard, then forget about consumer camcorders, because they don't produce it.

Okay well that's good advice.
So would you say I'm looking at something more £3000 then £600.

Thanks
