Going hitch hiking- Best 24p camcorder under $1k
Posted 16 December 2010 - 12:37 PM
I found this Panasonic camcorder that shoots 24p for $800...
It also has some other attractive features like interval recording, 60p, assignable manual control ring, etc.
I would have to carry peripheral gear such as a way to record audio (either through an adapter or double system) and a letus adapter and some EF lenses. But I could also just grab this little camera at any point and shoot on the fly.
My question is...is anybody aware of other new 24p consumer camcorders for under $1k?

Why not just leave the Letus at home bring the HMC150 with you and grab a T2i for "vista shots." use the HMC for longer takes, where shallow DoF is less important (the meat and potatoes of it) and the T2i or whatever, for the "vista," and "artsy" moments.
It's a good idea and I have considered that. My main concern with the HMC150 is its size. I would love something smaller. I know that when I start talking about Letus adapters and EF lenses, I am somewhat negating the size advantage of a smaller camcorder like the one I linked above, but the Letus and lenses can be stashed away and don't always have to be used- I could get plenty of footage with just the camcorder and take advantage of its small size.

The Canon S95 shoots 24p but you are locked-in to whatever settings you are on when you hit record- no zoom, focus, etc, not even auto...
Anybody have any input?
