Hey guys and gals, hope all are well.


 I was wondering of anyone has a good suggestion for a camera that can take video with decent sound and pics with good clarity. My Nikon L610 gave up. Something with decent battery life and is less than $500. Any and all thoughts are welcome and appreciated.

i would suggest that if you have any Nikon lenses that you stick with that brand. 

I am a canon guy so anything from the 60D up to the 90D can do 1080P video. i think they are marketed as rebel in the states?

as for sound some cameras have a mic socket for an external mic but a seperate audio recorder like a zoom would be better. let the camera record audio as well so it is easier to sync the external recorded audio to the video.

 Thanks for those tips. They'll be quite helpful. I'll look up "Zoom"

 My introduction, well, semi-serious amature photography, 25 years ago, low-budget camera style was a second hand AE-1 with a little collection of filters and a couple of good lenses. I loved that camera, took a few good pictures, more bad ones and learned a lot. Sadly the camera died and I sold the extras. Fast -forward to a few years ago with the L-610 digital. Pretty good, but would like to move up a little to a better rig for recording my wife and I for fun.

 Thanks again, Timothy

If you are willing to start from scratch camera and lens wise. then mirrorless cameras seem to be the future with all of the major brands going in that direction

 Thank you for the link, Timothy. I'll get to that later today. Hoping for something with at least as good sound as the Nikon. It was pretty good.

 Well Tim, I pulled the trigger on the Zoom H1 essential. Should be here Saturday. Still don't know what I'll do about a camera, perhaps the Zoom Q2 or Q8, maybe,  but this will keep my wife and I busy for awhile. Thanks for the tip!
