I hear a lot of talk about P2 and Red cameras... and whatever is cool and new and next.
But I still contend that HDV is the format for today--if you want to go beyond MiniDV and you don't have money for a different tape-based HD option. In the future something else will come along and replace it. But for at least the next two minutes, HDV is the way to go. And I like Canon. So I really like the XLH1. And it really is a sexy camera.
In fact, it amuses me when the XLH1 crops up in films as the "cool camera" for people to use because it looks so good.
So, yeah, I've got a sexy camera that looks good.
Me and Sonyia
And I still content that it's the way to go if you're moving beyond MiniDV.
