I am looking for a resonable quality production camera
My chooses are Canon XL1 Sony Pd 150 Sony Pd 170.
The 170 is the obvious being new. the 150 I can pickup X hire for a reasable price but the XL1 is a tradin and is bargain priced.
Ive been told to stick with sony an because of a few facts (repacement parts serviceing ease to use etc).
But the canon is such a great price.
Any advice would be apreciated.
Also apon reading ths specs for the XL1 it states that the DV terminal is Via a special 4 pin connecter Based on IEEE 1394 does this mean that its not fully fire wire compatable as ths sony is.????
Also I am in Australlia so the cameras are PAL (if that makes any difference).
