Anyone ever use the Ikegamis for their "digital" work?

Only an old one from the late 90's.

Just curious.  I have an HL- V77 that uses the DVCPRO (not the mini DV) Tape.  It's cosmetically in mint condition and all of the functions seem to operate as they should, without the lens.  Before I invest in a lens (a couple of hundred dollars for a used one), I just wanted to get some opinions.  Yes, it's an older one.  I also have the Canon XL-1 that uses miniDV tapes.  Kinda wanted to know which is gonna give me better image quality.

Thanks.

The Ikeagama will probably give you much better images as it probably has a much better imager and signal processing after-the-fact.

Hi-end Ikegamis were vastly superior to equivalent hi-end Sonys, so I think there's no need to compare them to an XL1.
