I have the responsibility to purchase two cameras for my workplace. I need a digital still camera and a video camera.
The still camera will be used in a manufacturing environment and out in the field, so a heavy duty camera is a must. I have experience with the Olympus Stylus tough series, and I have been very pleased with that line. I would welcome other suggestions. Preferably less than $400.
The video camera would be used to make instructional videos of some of our products. It might see some light field use. A heavy duty option would be nice, but not necessary if it drastically increases the size or price. A camera that is handheld but tripod-ready would be perfect. I think it should be HD for resolution. I am completely new when it comes to modern video cameras, so I’m looking for suggestions on makes and models. Preferably less than $800.
Any recommendations on editing software?
If anyone reading this is a dealer, feel free to PM me for my email address. I would welcome quotes along with your suggestions. I would like to give business to fellow divers if possible.
