Instead of the 4:2:0, 21 mbps AF100, you might want to consider the $3495 (on sale) 4:2:2, 50 mbps JVC GY-LS300 (http://adorama.evyy.net/c/60286/51926/1036?u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.adorama.com%2Fjvgyls300.html).
The LS300 has the same lens mount as the AF100, but it has a larger, Hollywood-sized Super 35 sensor and performs well in low light – plus it has the ability to live stream to USTREAM and other services from its own IP address with a $10 USB IP adapter (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B003MTTJOY/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=B003MTTJOY&linkCode=as2&tag=videomaker22forum-20), as seen here:
I’ve shot with this camera and it produces a very nice Ultra High Definition 2160p “4K” image, 4 times the AF100’s maximum 1080p resolution.
Here is what this camera can do (please watch YouTube examples at 2160p and your monitor’s highest resolution):
Here is a very nice overview from Zacuto:
And a great review from Rick Young’s Movie Machine:
In my view, this camera is much better suited for broadcast use than the AF100.
Hope this is helpful and good luck with your show!
