I've owned a Z1U for over a year and use it mostly in the SD mode for event work. I've used it in HDV for personal work and I've been very impressed and plan to use it for my own indie work. I also own 2 DVX100's...happy with those as well.
I need to purchase a second 16:9 native camera to be used with the Z1U as second camera in the next month or so, again used mostly in SD mode for now. I really would like to stay with an HDV capable camera for future and indie use.
The choice is a V1U or another Z1U? I'm mostly interested in picture quality and low light rather than 24p as I would use dv film software for my indie work when and if needed.
OR...as luck might have it...perhaps a 24p Z1U is on the horizon?
Right now the difference in price is +$500 for the Z1U over the V1U. So picture quality is really an issue.
Thanks for any help on this one as I am in Key West and can't easily get my hands on a V1U for comparison.
Z1U or V1U?
