What cameras are being used in the production of today's music videos? I am leaning towards using the Panasonic Varicam, or Sony's F/900 3, both of course HD. I have the editing system that can do the post so I am safe there. Also, is it safe to use the consumer level Sony HD cameras, or even the Panasonic DVX 100?
Just to note, the music videos are of the rap genre, and the artists are going to try to get the videos aired on one of the several video channels (i.e. BET).

Hi,

Music videos are made using every sort of format. 35mm,16mm,8mm , Thompson Viper, Sony 900, Panasonic varicam, Digibeta, DV CAM, DVC PRO and mini DV.

The Budget and look will be the main factors.

Hi,

I've shot a couple on Varicam, which I found to be the obvious choice for the genre.

Whether it'll be better than a HVX-200, or rather whether it'll be better enough than the HVX-200, remains to be seen, but I'd hate to think of doing what I've done on Varicam on HVX.
