Do you have a sample video shot with that camera?
I bought a canon A1300 over black friday for $60 with the pure intention of filming tennis. The video quality isn't exactly what I thought it would be. My iphone 4s takes better videos than this camera. I guess you really do get what you pay for.
So I'm looking around for something of a higher quality. I'm looking for one that has full HD capability, but I will most likely record at 720p to conserve storage. From what I've seen, cameras that can go 1080p tend to record better videos at 720p than those cameras that max out at 720p
I'm open to any suggestions. Budget is under $200
