Looking down a long, dark tunnel

July 11, 2008

As the days and hours close in on whether or not to buy the DV camcorder right now, I must step away from the situation and listen.

I have considered getting a DV camcorder for a short while now, and one person that I have asked is my friend John Calloway (http://johncalloway.wordpress.com/) who has supplied some great information and helped me in this long and tedious camera hunt.  Really, it hasn’t been that long or tedious, but it sounded good.

Anyhow, I am greatly indebted to John (thanks John!) because I am so new to this field of film media that I don’t know where to start when looking for a good camera.  Thanks bunches!

And I have decided which camera I want.  Notice I say “want”.  The JVC Everio GZ-HD7, (see product the page here) a good HD camera with a Fujinon lens, 3CCds, a manual focus wheel, pixel-shift technology, widescreen, etc., and it looks so good!

But I wonder and must pause, because perhaps I am not supposed to get a DV camcorder right now…

I have slightly considered getting a low-end model (for what I am considering) such as this Sony (see here,) or even a mid-range model, and then later, when the time comes, upgrade to a camera like this (the XH A1.)

But still the issue stands whether or not to get a DV camcorder at all at this point in time.  I know what camera I want, and that it would be great to have it, but … we’ll see what happens in the coming days, hours, and moments (the moments are the most important of them all.)

And with that, I take a swoosh of my hat and a curtious bow, and say “Goodnight, goodnight, to all a sweet goodnight!”

Ciao,

P.S. I understand if you do not know why on Earth I am waiting to get the camera when I have the money to and want to, but when you are in a situation like this, between a rock and a hard place, you’ll understand my hesitation.  Until then, I can only ask for prayer for wisdom and submission.  Thanks a lot!

  1. Dear Lord, please help Ben to have wisdom and submission.


  2. Thank you, Pastor Nicky. it will be hard to make it through the decide-and-buy stage, etc., so I greatly appreciate your prayers. I am unsure whether to get the Everio GZ-HD7 now… like, I would get it, and am greatly leaning towards it, but then again, it’s not a real “pro” camcorder, (and I can’t expect it to be,) but it may be wise to get something less expensive and upgrade when the time comes. But to each situation other difficulties are added, so, I really … am glad you’re praying for me.

    Thanks a lot!
