Just moved this post form sony dv thread as it relates to all camera's not just sony .

Hey guys I work for a small production company in the UK, we produce information DVD's that we sell nationally.
However lately I've been getting a few contracts outside of work, I've been doing most of these so far with my works camera which is a Sony DSR-570WSP with a CANON YJ20x8.5B4 KRS SX12 lens.

I've just got the dates for my next pieces of filming and some of them are clashing with when the camera is being used at work which means I wo'n't be able to use it.

So as you will have guessed I'm looking to buy a new camera for personal use, my budget is around £6500 i'd prefer a shoulder cam but not too fussed, it'll need to be PAL, capable of 16:9, at least the same kind of quality as my works cam and if I can for the budget (probably not lol) preferably be HD (i'd like to move away from dvcam).

Anyone got any ideas I'd really appreciate some help.

P.S I'm editing on fcp on a dual core 2.93 ghz macbook pro with 4 gb of ram (in case you want to know ), and we mostly sell DVD's no Blu ray yet ;)



Ive seen this camera thats within my budget

JVC GY-HM700E (GYHM700) ProHD solid state shoulder-mount 3-CCD camcorder c/w 14x Canon HD lens

Would this fill all my needs? will it do 16:9? Does anyone know if the quality is as good/better than the camera I have been using at work?
Or could i get something better within my budget?

Would really appreciate some help
