    Looking to buy a video camera to tape soccer games - brand, model and price?

    Then we'll make highlight files to send to collegiate coaches.

    Moving pictures, much like the film camera, are a fad.

    I don't think they use "tape" anymore.

    Shouldn't you be telling us the price range? What type of zoom you want? Do you have the editing software to your videos?

    Our regular camera shoots HD video so we got a two for one deal. Our issue is editing the videos.

    Nikon d3100 or d5100 DSLR cameras are great for video as well.

    I picked up this camera from Sony (refurbished) for $199.

    It seems like a decent camera, especially for the price. I would recommend checking back there to see if they go on sale again...that is if you aren't in a huge rush to get one.

    $500-700. 2x to 3x for some closeup work, especially when action is around the goal. My son just used a routine software to capture a 35 second segment from a DVD of a travel tournament game. If the camera is digital or uses DVD, we could use that method. If it has to be transferred from a VHS tape, say, we'd need software like my brother uses.
