I'm in the process of deciding which camera I would like to purchase. I've narrowed my choices down to the 1014 E or the 1014 XL-S. Both are similar, but there's a significant price difference (which I'm willing to maybe pay).
Which one would you choose? I like the fact the the 1014 E has the capability of going to 54fps, but the XL-S just overall looks like a nicer camera. The whole sound recording aspect isn't very useful to me as those cartridges are no longer made, but the XL-S can be converted by Pro8 to Max 8, and have a crystal sync installed for sync sound (I'm not sure if they can mod the E - I've emailed them asking).
Pros/cons appreciated. This will be my first Super 8 camera and I want to choose the nicest model in this range.
