Hello, I recently got offered a used Ikegami HL-DV7W with the DVCam deck from a friend of mine, and I am wondering if its worth purchasing for freelance work, since I do not have the funds to get into the HD workflows. can anyone please provide me a good review of this camera as well as its image quality for freelance work?
Yes, It does include the owner's manual with purchase. I have set up Ikegami HL-55s at a non profit radio station to allow them to web-cast concerts that were preformed in a venue, and the manual has some humorous English translations in it. Especially in the maintenance manuals.
Also, how does this Ike model preform under fluorescent light or uneven florescent lighting when using camera or portable lighting isn't permitted (e.g. boxing matches in an auditorium with florescent lights only)?
