hi all,


i just had a quick question.

i am struggeling between the z7 and the s270. has anyone shot on both?

i am thinking of purchasing one of them but am totally convinced of either of them.

my heart lies with the z7.

i am just looking for any feedback from either.

would be great to hear what you guys think about both cameras.

actually there is no big differences between s270 and z7. The differences are structural. S270 has a adjustable shoulder strap and z1 has not nothing like that. S270 can record 4 channel audio, on the other hand z7 has two channels for recording the audio. S270 supports and can record on Standard DVCAM 184 m cassettes but z7 only support minidv/hdv cassettes.

but all the operational features of the both cameras are same. but i found z7 more comfortable for shooting.

I've just shot with a S270, it's a shoulder mounted camera and it was great for hand held. I guess it depends on what you're used to, but it was very comfortable, but light enough for off shoulder hand held shots using the LCD above the viewfinder.
