I am looking to move from a high end consumer camera into a more
capable prosumer camera. I plan to use it at least for (a) fund-raising
and short documentary style videos for non-profit groups, and (b)
shooting travel video that can be incorporated into documentaries.
Family events are a side benefit.
What should I look for? Probably an adequate level of manual controls.
Quality video reproduction. Size and weight are important. 24p ability
seems at least somewhat important. I'm not certain about HDV. Cost is
I love the size and weight of the GL-2 but I've eliminated it largely
due to the number of tape transport problems-and the lack of 24P
helped clinch that (though if any of you feel differently, I'd like
to hear from you). The choice seems to be between the Panasonic DVX100B
and the Sony HDR-FX1.
Both seem to be good cameras. Both cost about the same. The DVX100B has
a proven track record and 24P. The Sony is HD and has CineFrame24 but
I've read both good and bad reviews of that and would like to hear
your experience. HD is probably not important right now, but might give
some of the travel clips a longer useful life.
I'd like to hear your thoughts. Also what editing packages would
support 24P on the DVX100 or would support HD on the FX1. I currently
use Premiere 6.5
