Well, the DVX-100 has progressive scan, and many fimmakers have said it’s great for making feature films. On the other hand, you said you’re getting into documentaries, which might require low light shooting. The PD170 would be best for low-light work. And on yet another hand (you do have 3 hands, right?), HD is becoming more prevalent; so, are you sure you want to invest in standard definition? Maybe investing in the lower cost GL-2 would do for the next year or 2, while saving some money for your HD dream camera.
How’s that for a lot of talk that doesn’t answer your question? X-D
