So recieved my panasonic sd700 cam, spent a day with it and sent it back... sorry chris... the thing was to small to fiddly, not good enough to be a pro at my weddings, so? had quite a few enquiries to do the stills with a video full package so i have to make the jump to a dslr without doubt..... yes i know all the problems associated with the dslr video.
I have looked at the 550d v 60d v 7d v 5d... so at the moment 550d can get for £595 with kit lens... 60d can get for £895 with kit lens... 7d can get for body only £995 then need a couple of good lens? any ideas on lens if i choose anyone of these?? 5d seems to be the king but at £2700 plus l series lens... so i then look at the panasonic gh2... now at the moment i have the sony hvr1000e. a hc7 in a big case, pro looking has its limitations good in great light terrible the slightest low light... hv40 for cutaways and b-roll.. so do i sell the sony? get another hv40 and get the dslr, if so which one, i have spent hours and the 7d seems to be slightly edging them all!!!! any takes on advice for me...is the hv not pro looking enough to have as my main cam? The way i am filming at the moment? small clips apart from the ceremony and speeches would i use the dslr more than the hv anyway?? steve
