View Full Version : Z1 or what?

05-24-2005, 10:54 PM
I am soon to begin shooting a documentary on a small sail boat. I want to shoot on HD (for future proofing reasons) but a *real* HD camera would be out of the question both financially and from the perspective of ease of handling. The Z1 looks as though it might be a good possibility, but I would appreciate some hands on comments.
Given the situation of shooting at sea in varied sea conditions, movement will be a factor which I am planning to reduce by the use of gimbolled shooting positions - but it will still be a major issue.
I will also be editing on location so a laptop or micro system will be the way to go.
Any experiences or suggestions relating to this would be greatly appreciated.
Can't afford film.
Many thanks,
