Experience has shown me that a quality small camera is far less intimidating to non-professional talent in interviews. I consider I get a far more relaxed and better interview than with a big camera. For interview shoots I use a Sony HD camera model HVR-A1 and for other work I use a Sony HVR-Z5 (with the A1 as a back up or second camera). I have taken the A1 around the world in small personal around the waist camera bag, its a great workhorse and always gives great results.
