I am looking to take up plane spotting as a new hobby and need a video camera for footage, I have a Sony SLR which can take decent enough images but no video functionality so need to get my self a half decent video camera.
I have found 2 cameras which i think would be adequate for the job and they are linked below:
Both these camera look good however one has more zoom (v520) and the other has better quality (V720) so basically I'm wondering which one is best for plane spotting. In most occasions i will be positioned about 500-1000 meters from the planes and would like to zoom in to see them on the approach, departure so to get a range of like 2-3 miles? maybe more. I have seen people do it before just not sure what type of camera they use. Also if you know of any other cameras around the same price marks as these (£200-400) from other makes that would do the job just as well or better that would be great.
