Thanks, I hadn’t looked too much at the VX-2100. I haven’t researched different models yet so I’m somewhat ignorant of the specific features as of writing this, but I do know what I don’t like about the TRV-460.
1: Manual focus along with other important manual functions are accomplished via the touch screen (not good)
2: Non optical image stabilization destroys pans (jerky jittery and heavily pixelated)
3: No external mic jack.
4: Tripod shoe needs to be removed to change tapes.
those are the four main frustrations I have and would like to upgrade.
My budget will be $2000-$2500 so I don’t really expect nor do I need a professional grade camera for that price range, but I would like to maximize bang for the buck.
