Ideal For Competitive Soccer YouTube Video Posting

 

I use this for chroma key work, HDV is easy on the computer and the key is clean , see youtube http://youtu.be/b5UtaB-HtOY or "Ron Holt wanton song" I tried DSLR's and the AVCHD format , I like HDV much better

No bluetooth mic. Not that anyone has it
