Im looking at buying a second hand video camera and im considering these two options.
Does anyone have any advise on the best to chose? They are pretty much the same price.
My biggest needs are low light and wide lens, but the lux and focal lengths appear to be the same.
Any advice will be appreciated.
I suggest going with the Z1, if only for the XLR audio connections. Good cameras both. Extremely stable and utterly reliable. I’ve owned both. Still have the Z1. The XLR connections give me better control over my audio, less chance of rf interference as I had a few times with the FX1. Decent prices on both these days.
