    Camcorder ?

    Son's football coach has asked me to video tape games (I said yes) and he wants to buy a video camera/camcorder.

    Is this a good one?

    Doesn't want to spend a lot and don't need many "extras". HD is good enough....4K not needed.

    Video without sound, slight zoom (optical, not digital), and get it on Youtube quickly.

    I'd go for a Sony Handicam. They are tried and trusted.

    And get a shirt that says "Official Team Photographer" on the back, or you might end up on one of those catch-a-pervert shows.

    Hell no. Tripod in the pressbox. It's great on rainy nights.

    Good, it being panned to follow the action or out wide the whole time?
