Hi everyone, so every forum I go to and every review I read has something similar or different to say about the three cameras I am looking at. I am really at a loss of what to pick up.
What I am shooting: Sports mainly (some day time, the occasional high school lit field at night), interviews, and event stuff
What I am editing with: Finalcut 7
What I have that also shoots video: 1Dmk4
What I am looking at:
Canon XF300 (I don't plan on doing multicam ever)
I know they are all similar in terms of low light performance being 1/3" chips. But is there any separation?
Autofocus is better from what I have ready on the Canon, so I am leaning that way, although manual focus for video shot from a high broadcast style level would more than likely be quite easy given the depth of field and how wide I'd be shooting.
But I am literally being tugged in a different direction every time I read something new.
So what do you all recommend based on your experiences?
Also another question, is there anyway to record straight to dvd? Or would I have to import the footage, export it, and then burn a dvd?
