View Full Version : Which HDV camera for documentary work?

I'm having an hard time choosing which camera would be the most suitable for documentary work. Solid state doesn't suit my needs because of the storaging issues and the cost of the actual cards. 1080 p would be great but not a must so 720p is okay.

The new Sony HVR-Z7U seems interesting. 25p is a must (when this camera hits europe). Not sure about the CMOS stuff yet.

Versatility and image adjustment controls appriciated. I'm also interested in the Canon's XH A1. Do you guys have any thoughts about this subject?

The Z7 is allready at dealers, call your favorite one for a demo.

I saw one in person the other day at Suomilammi.
