I want to shoot a reality series

the scenes that I shoot in this series would closely mirror those in “the millionaire matchmaker”. Some of the scenes would be inside an office as small as a cubicle with 4 people sitting across the desk from each other. Other scenes would be in automobiles traveling. Some of the shots would be outside. In your opinion, what would be the least expensive camcorders (2) that I could purchase that would provide acceptable quality?

Re: I want to shoot a reality series

Many of the high end reality shows are shot on Sony PDW-700/800's, EX's or Panasonic Varicams or better. The minimum requirement for most shows are the Sony EX's.
