Hi all,

I am switching from stills to videography, essentially for a hobby but who knows what lies ahead.

What I would like to ask is what are the good and bad things with the JVC GY-HM150, a lot of my shooting will be personal interviews and shooting model aircraft, stationary and in flight so Image stabalising will be a welcome bonus if it is any good on this camera? I would also like to have good control over depth of field, I will be using this 1.4kg unit on a tripod and free hand on a habby cam shoulder support.
Am I looking at a reasonable camera for the above applications?
Are their any suggestions for other similar price range cameras? A friend uses a Sony NEX VG20 which I found a bit heavy for long periods of hand held shooting :-/

Any advice or suggestions would be greatly appreciated,,

Many thanks
