      I’m looking at getting a professional camcorder after spending several years with a lower-end Canon ZR40. I want to make short films and have the option of transferring it to film. I’ve been looking at the Canon XL2, Sony HVR-Z1, Panasonic AG-DVX100A, AG-HVX200, and even the newly announced Canon HDV camera. I have a budget of around $8000(been saving up a while). If anyone could give me their opinions on what I should do it would be of much help.
