    Could anybody PLEASE recommend to me a camera with similar or the exact same specs as the Casio EX-FS10 (http://www.dpreview.com/news/0901/09...imcompacts.asp) which is due out in March.

    The price as it says will be $350. Can anybody recommend a camera in or around the same price range and with the same specs if there is one?I can't wait till March, lol. Please? Cheers. Jono.

    You need to be able to control the shutter speed. That's really important. Make sure the camera lets you do that.

    Well, at the moment I have a Sony DCR-HC22E Handycam.


    http://www.sony.co.uk/product/sdh-minidv/dcr-hc22e/tab/technicalspecs#tab


    There's the technical specs. I don't know if you can set shutter speed manually but you can change it to sports mode etc. don't know what difference it makes. Anybody familiar with this camera?

    I wanna try and get some video tomorrow that I hope to post here. My forehand is pretty crappy at the moment. I tried reading the manual but it's too hi tech for me :oops:

    Any assistance would be great.

    Cheeers.

    Specs say you can change it. Make sure the shutter speed is at least 1/500. Keep in mind that the faster you set the shutter speed the brighter you need it to be. So a really fast shutter speed doesn't work indoors -- not enough light will get through.

    Youngin' huh? Then you should be more proficient w/technology! But you're right, it can get confusing.
