Hi all. I am looking into purchasing either a FX1 or Z1P. I live in Australia and want to buy it for mainly my big road trip holiday to the US next year. I dont work in the industry anymore (I used to work in TV News about 6 years ago - now work in Emergency Services!!).
I plan to use it as an ENG camera for freelancing etc so I will only be using SD DV modes but on my holiday will be shooting 1080i the whole time.
What I want to know is from your opinions, should I fork out for the pro model Z1P based on the use I plan to give it or stick to the FX1. I also want to know is if the Z1P's manual focus ring is the same as the FX1's - ie a basic ring that continues to turn around and around? Are the manual zoom controls the same between the models. I would like the Z1P for the extra XLR's and some extra features, but do I need them?
Info needed please!
