Firstly, impressive forum you guys have here - friendly, helpful and people post as if they were smiling - Kudos
Anyhoo, I have a question for you about the combination of the Archos AV500 and the Archos Digital Mini-Cam. I run a film company and am looking for light-weight, compact cameras for action-shots (imagine the sort of shots you see from inside cars on Top Gear or motor racing coverage on TV - that sort of thing).
Now a friend turned me on to the Archos devices but neither he nor I have ever owned one. Does anyone here actually have the AV500 and Mini-Cam and can they give me a good idea of what the best quality captured footage looks like using this setup? Is it as good as a standard video-camera? Better? Worse? What is the colour-balance like?
We'll be looking to get a few of these so it could be a costly mistake if it's not up to the job. The quality doesn't need to be "broadcast" quality, but it does need to be good.
Any help or information would be very much appreciated. If anyone actually has a clip or two recorded with this setup, I'd love to see it.
Many thanks in advance.
