I'm actually trying to "Win" a new cam, because i don't have money to puchase a new one. sad part is, I really NEED a new camera. It's about time, I've been using the same camera for 4 years, it's time to upgrade and get the current refurbished or something./
The Camera's that i've been looking into are simpler, why? because DSLR's aren't neccesarily the best cameras for moving marching bands if you want to really capture greatness.... There are pro's and cons to any cam and I Love the DSLR, but I think a camcorder would work just fine.
I still need a camera for photo purposes as as well, that's what will keep me with a DSLR..
