I am seriously considering buying a EX1 - although I need to understand the technicalities of it not being about to record in standard definition.
It will be used mostly for filming wedding and some corporate video - the final out put of which must be able to be played on non-HD TV's - additionally, it will be exported for web - I am assuming that because of the quality and the fact that it uses SxS memory cards, it will greatly increase the size of files, making it unfeasible for the web? Maybe I am going overkill with this Camera.
If indeed these are problems to be seriously considered, then what would be the next best camera? i.e. good in low light, minimal drop outs etc. I am told that HDV is a pain and DVCAM is better, but on it's way out. Is this true?
Also I will be using the Camera in all likelihood with the Merlin Steadicam and vest, so weight will need to be considered.
