We have been using a Sony camcorder model DCR-TRV950E for many years. It is a very old model and does not produce excellent videos plus it records on tapes. We need a new camcorder for 2 main uses:
Record short business videos for our new website
Record business presentations (where the camcorder is placed on a tripod and it captures the presenter and the 40” plasma screen on which the presentation is running).
At the moment our recordings of the presentations look really bad. When loaded to the computer even with highest resolution It is not possible to read/understand the content shown on plasma screen at all. Even though there is reasonable lighting, the room and presenter appears darker.
Could you please suggest a reasonably priced camcorder model which can do the job well. At the moment I have looked at Sony HDR-CX410 (£460) or Sony HDR-CX220 (£200) but unsure of the result. Any advice will be greatly appreciated.
