After much dithering I reckon (have been advised) that for my money the best HD camera to learn with and make some good looking shorts is the XH A1. It appears to have the best balance of quality, manual control and price. Can anyone recommend somewhere near London to buy one? I see amazon have them for £2200-ish but I would prefer to give my dosh to a 'nice dealer' - or is than an oxymoron?
This camera is £500 cheaper than the XL2 - isn't the A1 a much better investment?
