Wich DV cam to buy???

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Shooting DV Films : One Thread

I'm looking to buy a DV cam for around $2.500 and whas hoping to get some tips.

The little experience I have with DV cams is that focus is so difficult to handle. Is it posible like one do on film cameras, to adjust focus to a spesific area. Say you want a medium shot of a person standing 6 feet away from the camera and you want him sharp but have the rest of the background soft. Or to get REALLY narrow depth of field in extreme close ups of a face. And just have the noe tip sharp.

I'm probably asking too much of a DV cam for that price range, but anyone have a suggestion?
