Looking for a HD/HDV camcorder
on May 12, 2009 at 2:50:57 pm

Hi everybody,
i am looking for a tapeless/combined camcorder which can record HD/HDV/XD.
My needs are: shooting events like galas and such, low-budget short-films, documentaries and commercials.
I would choose among Sony Z5 + CF recorder/ Z7 or EX1 (yet too expensive the Sxs cards) / Panasonic Avx-20X / JVC GY-HD1XX-2XX (it is a 720p though) / or...
I use Avid MC/Xpress or even liquid/premiere (pc oriented) and need of some fast and reliable camera good in low light and still sharp.

Cheers.

There are less expensive cards for the EX-1. Go to the Sony CineAlta forum

Thanks for your suggestion.
I'm having a look to the Sxs substitutive cards for sony EX1.
How about the editing workflow? As i said i'm an Avid MC editor (i own Pc not a mac).

Cheers.

Check out the JVC HM700. It records to SD cards and will shoot SD, 720 and 1080 HD in both interlaced and progressive in with XDCAM EX or HDV formats.

Thanks Mike but it is a bit overpriced for my budget. Any impression about the AVCHD editing workflow?

Cheers.

From the EX-1, you're native in PPro on the PC (also in FCP on the Mac, but you said you were on the PC...)

Pretty straightforward actually. I don't know the particulars of Avid workflow, but I'd guess the Avid forums would provide as much info as you need on that.
