I 'll make a documentary, and I'm asking what'is the best camera between the Z1 and the S27O.
In fact I'm going to shoot with a steadycam so... Is the lens is better with the S27O and what sort of avantage I have to take the S270?

Thanks for your answers

Hello:

If the steadycam is a vest mounted one, I would go with S270, the other camera is far too light. We have both at the studio, and the 270 is our default shooter. If you're doing a lot of hiking or remote stuff for the documentary or need to keep a low profile, the Z1 is of course your better bet. I think the lens on the 270 also is a little better (but I haven't done any tests on that). The 270 has a lot more external options to change on a fly including audio. Just my two cents.
