Currently I have a JVC GY-HD101E and I'm about to make a feature that hopefully will be transfered to film for theatrical distribution. I wonder if my JVC will produce enough good quality for the cinemas.
Other options would be the Sony XDCAM HD PDW-330, 350 or Panasonic AJ-HDX900.

My questions are:
1. Will the JVC lower recording quality be an obstacle for the theatrical distribution?
2. Will the quality difference of the superior cameras justify the extra expense?
(The 330 costs around $16,000. The Panasonic and Sony around $26,000)

Hi
I also own a jvc hd101 i have done the past tree monts two short films wich trensfered to film 35mm
the image quality was perfect both. I don realy know the kind of the project you are planning to shoot,
mine where low badget short films. There are a few setting on the camera that you can use for.
I have tested the camera and compare it with all the others in her kind and realy was the best. BUT the
panasonic hdx900 has alot more money and sure better image quality. Bigger ccd better compretion.
BTW my films were projected on big screen in national festival and realy where perfect. The critics for the image qualy was super. I am planig no to shoot a feature film and a short using jvc.
