I'm new to this forum, my name is Bram, 24 years old and I'm from the Netherlands.
I'm in the last year of my Multimedia education, did an internship as an item-director at a major TV station here, went great, have my own (small) video-production company now, and want to buy a camera of my own.
I used to always use camera's from the companies I work for, but I want to expand and be more independent.
I want to make items for web and television, but also short films and stuff (for school and for fun) with it. Apart from that I want to film events / weddings with it.
I've worked with Sony's A1, V1 and Z1, and I like the V1. My budget is about € 3500,- incl. VAT, which is just enough to buy it. I really like this camera, but I'm wondering if there are better camera's for that budget. I know the V1 has been out for a couple years, but that makes it affordable too. I just can't buy the newest HD beast out there, but do want to shoot in 1080i.
I really hope you guys can help out on what would be the best camera for me on that sort of budget, it doesn't have to be a Sony at all! These are just the cams i've worked with.
Thanks in advance!!
