Should I buy a Sony FX7 or another HV30?

Hello everyone,

I'm in a bit of dilemma, I now have an hv30 but I am not able to unscrew the step ring for raynox wide angle lens. I was thinking of selling it on ebay along with a t1i (not in the same auction). I do want to get in to film and make Christian movies and I know for the beginning filmmaker guys recommend the hv series. But as I was looking at how much I can make from these auctions, the fx7 came to mind and I was wondering if this was a foolish decision. Should I buy another hv30 or 40 and attach it to a brevis or letus instead, which is wiser, the latter seems to be but I wanted to some opinions from you all! Thanks in advance for the help!

I would look at a FX1 before an FX7 anyday. Much better camera, IMO, and you can find them for under $2k, sometimes as low as $1700.

If you like your HV30 find another used one, they are such fine little cameras.
