I am looking into buying a camera for general use. I was wondering what some of you are using for shooting your knife videos.

You wanna get something that shoots at least 720 at 60 Hz. Most LCD's maximum display is 60 Hz, so any faster is pointless. Hollywood movies shoot at something like 28 frames a second, which is kinda slow, but gives that cinematic look.
You can find a 720 camera dirt cheap these days, around 100 bucks for a good one. Spend around 200 or 250 and get a decent 1080 if you can. Going below the 200 price range on a 1080 is 'iffy'. Staying cheap on a 720 is fine though.
