Hey guys , wonder if u can help me ,

Im gonna be shooting live scenes of "reality TV" , similar to scare tactics , or any kind of candid camera , now my problem is , is I need at MINIMUM 2 cameras , for two different views , I would like the best quality possible , aswell as the possiblity to be converted to film , but I only have $5,000.00 to spend , I was thinking perhaps these two :

http://www.amazon.co...P...890&sr=1-10

http://www.amazon.co...d...787&sr=1-85


now obviosly a Sony FX1 is waay better , is HD , the thing is , would that make any difference weather people will buy my "movie" or not , I have NEVER bought a movie because its "HD" , (although blue rays are becoming popular) but still ,

what you guys think of these cameras?

the PANASONIC will be my "2nd" camera ....or perhaps I get 2x of the same one? or you can tell me both are crap and I should get somemore cash and rather get 2 FX1's

or perhaps you can recomend something better suited for me? some of the things I will be using : wireless mics , computer editing

thanks for your help

If you really intend to do a film out of the final edit, there's only one camera you should be looking at. The DVX100B from Panasonic. It's the only one that has real progressive CCDs and shoots in a special kind of 24P that allows the full progressive frames to be reproduced without artifacts.
