I like the specs of the Canon and the Panasonic, especially the manual over/undercranking feature available on the latter. I would also like the camera to work well in low lighting environments and be easily connectable to a laptop. I've heard rumours that the motor sounds are picked up on the on-board mic when using the Sony, but I've also heard that it has a lot of features for the price.
Any help would be very greatly appreciated.
Thank you very much,
I had actually just all but sold myself on a Panasonic AG-DVX100. The definition is not as important to me as the film look, and i figured i could probably get 2 for the price of 1 HVX200, or at least 1 DVX100 and a lot more extras (decent mic, tripod, software etc).
Is the HVX really worth the extra money?
