So I figured out the answer to my galvanometer question ( http://www.cinematog...showtopic=16960 ) and found out that is much more expensive and involved than I want to go through right now... so I went lookin for some other cameras and have found a few that I really like but was wondering if anyone could offer me some info on the best buy:

Nizo 800 Pro
Schneider-Kreuznach Multicoating MACROVARIOGON 1:1,8 / 7-80 mm
auto / manual zoom at 2 speeds
split-image focusing
frame rates: 18, 24, 54 fps, singleframe, time lapse mode
manual / auto exposure (+1 correction)
daylight filter, fades
battery test button

Nizo S800
Schneider-Kreuznach VARIOGON 1:1,8 / 7-80 mm
auto / manual zoom at 2 speeds
split-image focusing
var. shutter
frame rates: 18, 24, 54 fps, singleframe, time lapse mode
manual / auto exposure
daylight filter, fades
battery test buttons
contacts for several additional features (remote control, cable release, flash contact..)

Nizo S560
Schneider-Kreuznach Variogon 7-56 mm. f/1.8.
Reflex viewfinder with split image rangefinder.
Variable shutter, auto dissolve.
18, 24 and instant 56 frames per second.
Single frame.
Time laps with flash synchronisation.
Sound synch impulse socket for mains use.
Sun hood
eye cap

Canon 518 SV
9-48mm Lens
auto / manual zoom

Thanks again for any information and opinions on this! I really appreciate it! :ph34r:

1: Nizo pro - macro and AA batteries

2. Nizo 560 - Schneider 7-56 lens, light weight.

3 S800 - older style 7-80mm lens, no macro, crappy 1.3 volts batteries required...

4 None - the Canon is not in the same league as the above 3.

Awesome, thanks so much for the info... I would have never known about the batteries on the S800, I really appreciate it!
