Hey guys, my name is Nick, and I'm a final year student filmmaker at NWSAD, North Wales, UK.

Seeing as its my last year, I am looking for a good minidv camera, I was hoping to invest in a Sony PDX10, but it seems they dont make those anymore, SO... I have been trying to find something that would be similar to the Sony PDX10, but to no avail.

Does anyone have any suggestions please? many thanks.

What I am most concerned about is getting something with anamorphic widescreen (or true wide), hopefully 3CCD, a focus ring on the camera, firewire in and out.
