could you guys advise me about what would be a good camre to edit with FC
I want to shoot a concert with 4 or 5 small cameras and I was thinking about the sony HVRZ7U. Since this a just the time of a concert I dont need a lot of footage, so I think I can use a better format than HDV, I can record solid state, The sony has solid state but I think is HDV as well. What would be a better format than HDV than can work with FC? and what Camera? something not big like the sony or canon xl etc.
One solution is going with one of the above camera and extending them with a Atomos Ninja or a Ki Pro / Mini from AJA. Here you end up with a far better, less compressed image directly from the camera in a very FCP-savvy file-format (QuickTime / ProRes).
