From what I can gather, the biggest problem with the FX7 is that it saves in MPEG-2 – not great if you’re going to be editing afterwards. If you can swing the $3K, I think the FX1 is a great choice.
However, I do not use a pro or prosumer camera (I simply cannot afford one right now although the FX1 may come at some point – I really want a Z1U).
I’m sure there are many folks on this board who could recommend other cameras – Why don’t you wait for their responses and then take a trip to a high end camera place (like B&H or J&R) and play with them to see what you like?
