...I have been tearing my hair out over this. I am looking to upgrade my camcorder. Im in a dilemma over whether to stick to recording on HDV (MiniDV) or move to flash storage. My two options are:
Canon XH A1s (HDV)
Canon XF300 (Flash)
Im starting to get annoyed with capturing off tape as it is time consuming...also the issue with the camcorder head wearing out due to over-use. But I like the fact that recording on tape is uncompressed.
Then there is recording to compact flash cards. I have heard good things about the Canon XF300 and that way I could just drag & drop footage onto ky PC. I shoot mainly weddings.
Any opinions/suggestions would be welcome.
