both about the same...except when you put the 6x wide on the H1. NICE!
which cam will get me prettier footage.
The H1 is easier to hold for a long period of time, but not as easy as a true ENG cam
I would prefer shoulder mounted (hence my slight preference for the h1)
it is OK on your shoulder and gives good results with the 20x IS lens.
The A1 is about perfect size for a handycam if you like that form factor.
The viewfinder on the H1 is junk. I use it for a info display only. color and sharpness are horrid.
I've heard many complaints about its viewfinder.
The A1 display is adequate. Not as big as some, but gets the job done.
The displays/viewfinder are the only real bad thing on these cams, but not as bad in the A1's case
Yes. They have basically the same chip.
And is it true that the a1 pretty much IS the h1 in a smaller package and with a fixed lens? Is there any difference in their footage? Thanks!
Not a whole lot unless using a special lens on the H1 like the 6X wide or old 16x manual,
Is there any difference in their footage?
both of which are my favorite lenses for it. Also, the image stabilizer is better on the H1's
stock lens (20x) when compared to the A1.
