New to the forum. I did some searching and found some useful info for a b-cam for the hvx-200, but couldn't find anything anywhere for the hpx170.
Most people seem to support the Canon HV20 as a b-cam for the 200, but since that records on tape should I go with the Hg20 or 30? Or doesn't that matter?
We're mostly doing internet based content, like concerts and documentary shorts and the b-cam would strictly be for cutaways and excess footage. But we would like one that will be fairly serviceable on HD televisions.
Looking to spend under 750 used or new. We are using the 170 in 720pn in DVCHD, but we are flexible on that if anyone has suggestions for a cam we could use with different settings.
Have you considered getting the XH-A1 as well as alotting some of that extra coin to perhaps investing in an HV20/30 as a nice B-cam? They make great location cams as well b/c of their ability to record a great image with fantastic portability.
