    Question Canon DM-XM2 vs. Sony HVR-HD1000E

    I am sure I am going for one of these because they are both around the right price range for me. First I was pretty sure my camera was going to be the XM2 however when browsing I saw this Sony HD one for a couple less hundred. I have heard however that HD at the entry level professional isn't that great and your best going for SD at that price range. Is this true in this specific case?

    So what would all you filmmaking veterans advise to the novice?

    Thanks!

    XM2 - good solid reliable DV. Nicely made.

    HVR - appears to be a low rent pretend pro cam. Looks a bit toy like. I am aure it shoots adequate HDV but I alck forst hand expirience of this cam.

    How much do you need hdv ?

    Best not ask me the format pros and cons cos I am a pro dv die hard.

    If you do want to go HDV the canon hv30 is well liked by many and isnt pretending to be something it isnt.

    HD is not hyper important but I am making cinematic shorts so it would be a nice addition...if it's any good that is.
