      hi guys ..

      i’d posted earlier in Production on making content for broadcast ..

      anyways what i want to know now .. is a comparison on our first & second
      camera .. before we go into full production .. we figured we’d require
      atleast 2 cams .. & hence shortlisted 3 cams for our production stage & 3
      for our initial stage ..

      the cam for full production stage will be ..
      Sony DSR-PD250 OR Sony DSR-PD170 OR Canon XL2

      cam for initial test stage is one of the below ..
      Sony VX2100E OR Canon GL2 OR Panasonic AG-ADVC30

      so it’d be gr8 to know ur opinions as to which camera to choose in both
      stages & why so ?

      thnx

      I would go with the sony 250 and 2100. Why? Because they are the best two cameras on your short lists. The 250 would make a much better cam1 than any of the other 2 choices, it’s just a more pro camera with better control, and easier settings. The vx2100 is a very nice camera, and beats the gl2 and panny easily in almost all situations. And that way they are both sony cams, which makes life easier.

      Before you get wedded to the PD250, do some checking on its capabilities and idiosyncrasies. I used one during an internship with the local cable company and it’s difficult to override the automatic features, such as white balance, etc.

      Considering the $1500 price difference, I think the DVC30 is a good choice. Side-by-side image comparisons with the PD170 reveal very little difference between the two. Low light performance is similar, as are most other comparable features.

      I was refering to a different camera, the sony dsr 250. Changes some things in that case. I definately would be in favor of the sony cams though, having used sony, canon and panasonic.

      Actually, we’re both referring to the Sony DSR-PD250. While some may consider Sony products “more professional” simply because of the brand name, I was disregarding the brand and relying on direct experience with both.
