So after seeing that xl1 a while back my want for a pro cam has come back.
I will soon be in the market to move up the ranks. However my dilemma lies in what cam? I love canon, the hv20 has been my best cam to date and I will never buy another Sony. When I get my next cam I want decent low-light performance and as much physical control as possible. Obviously a focus ring is necessary, but I also want a iris ring or physical control of sorts and a zoom ring or decent size zoom switch (whats it actually called?) . I also want to move from tape so SD or SSD. Now here's the fun part, I want to keep the budget around 2k AUD excluding postage. I wont be getting the cam for a month or so so if you of a cam soon to be released thats fits the bill I'm keen to hear.
Oh and if possible a PAL option would be nice.
Thank you all in advance.
