I have had my XM2 for well less than a year and jolly pleased with it I am too!
But I am already thinking ahead to my next cam, and had I had the money 6 months ago I almost certainly would have opted for a Canon XL2s.
However I will be buying my cam in about another 12 months, by which time the HDV technology should be well embedded in most NLEs.
My videogrpahy still concentrates mostly on family events, the occasional one minute movies and some wedding videography.
Should I go HD? If so what are your top 5 reasons for doing so?
COMPAQ something or other with 500Gb Boot Disk, 1Tb external Firewire Disk, 4Gb Memory and a super duper sound card, 19" TFT Monitor etc etc etc
