Hell everyone. I am a newbie here. I am interested in purchasing a HDV camcorder. The pro version Z1 cost as much as FX1. Is it any better in recording quality especially in low light? :unsure:

Not sure, I haven't used either one.


My feeling is that you are better off spending your money on renting a Cine Alta, or Varicam. Unless you are making some serious money and are shooting every day, a good HD camera is going to be very expensive.


I could be wrong, but the new 1/3" inch HD cams are kind of like saying you have fine grain super 8 film. Even ASA 50 looks a bit grainy.


What kind of shoting will you be doing?
