Im looking for a camera to start doing some freelance work, ive been looking at the canon XL1's because that what I used at uni and I really like them.

Obviously I need something that is 3CCD but im not sure what else there is around.
I dont have any more than 700 really so im looking at 2nd hand low milage cameras.
Ive seen the XM1's and they look ok but they seem a bit small.

Any help would be great. Thanks
