Just to clarify - Z1U & Z1P
Posted 17 May 2007 - 07:20 AM
What is the difference? - I've used the Z1P several times and thought that the Z1P was PAL and the Z1U was NTSC, but upon looking on the net I see that they both record both PAL and NTSC. SO what is the difference between these cameras? As far as I can see they look/perfom the same.
If you had the choice would it be Z1P, Z1U, FX7 or HVX-200. I think I'll go for the HVX-200, but I'm buying for a school film programme so I'd like some opinions.

I just shot with the V1U, and relised that I guess all the Sony's are very similar in their operating systems, look and functions etc...
I'm having a bit of a hard time now - I am a big fan of the HVX-200, but the director of the company that has the money isn't convinced - i think we're silly to consider buying a sony HDV - probably the Z1P as opposed to DVCPro HD that the Panasonic offers. I have experience with both, and I feel better informed than my counterparts, but not enough to be an expert on the subject.
We have US10,000 to spend.
What's your view?
I've also considered the JVC GY-HD100, it's a bit out of our budget - but it looks sexy which helps sell our film programmes.
