Any cinematographer fathers out there? What cameras do your families use for home movies?
I'm a independent filmmaker and motion designer. My wife and I are about to have twins soon and I'd love to buy a camera for her this holiday that she could use (she's not in the field) but would still offer delicious 1080p as well as good quality audio. I've got a 7D and assortment of pro lenses but want something more compact and manageable for her.
I've been looking around and read some nice things about a few cameras:
Canon VIXIA HF M400
I'm also very curious about the Panasonic Lumix GF2
What do your families use? Thanks for any suggestions!
