We have a situation at work where we record student presentations.
These can run anything up to 2 hours per presentation.
From time to time the video presentations need to be sent to someone else for review - we usually have to copy these to USB sticks and courier them.
At the moment we use several Canon Legria video cameras. They are easy enough to use, but as they are all full HD cameras (it seems no one sells low quality video cameras anymore), the video files are very large (say 5GB for a couple of hours).
There are less and less video cams on the market (I guess mobile phones are eating that part of the market) and the image quality keeps increasing resulting in even larger files.
Ideally I would like some sort of video camera that can be:
- Used for indoor recording
- Placed on a tripod
- Not generate such vast files (HEVC would be great if any cameras can actually record in that format)
- SD quality would be fine (<720p)
- Easy to use (filming and copying files from camera)
Does anyone have any ideas?
