I am not very experienced in the world of camcorders, but need to purchase a high quality camcorder at reasonable cost. It will be used for both inhouse 'newsdesk' work, and going out to clients' premises to conduct quick interviews.
We work with Macs and have Final Cut Pro and someone who knows how to edit using this software. I was reading about the DVX100 (that's similar to the HVX200 except it uses tapes, as I understand.). Apparently it's pretty widely acclaimed and is even being used to film feature-length productions.
The HVX200 is going to set me back around 2.5k, should I also be looking at comparables, ie I heard Canon has a similar model?
