Value

I guess this is the only camera in this price range with these features. I'm new to "owning a camera" and am debating between a proven DVX100b and this. The dvx is about 1k cheaper w/ rebate. I've read a lot and tested the A1 in store. Did not floor me (will Canon ever make a usable lcd??) The CA is definitely there (or everyone wouldn't be talking about it in all these threads - it's real). The footage here is very choppy. The 24f looks different than the 24p in the DVx, that's for sure. It's very sharp and clear (duh). But I think for all the headaches, maybe I should just rent "a really good" HD camera when the project calls for it (like the HVX200). If you were a new buyer, is the A1 worth the extra 1k over the awesome dvx100b? I feel like I can get top-of-the-class SD or entry level (i.e. frustrating) HDV. Like the other poster says, once you step into HD, you expect a lot more and you SEE a lot more (good AND bad). Yours truly, About-to-punish-my-credit-card.
p.s. Thanks for posting the clips and the great debate! Without these forums, I'd be lost.

The A1 and the HVX200 are not far off being in the same ballpark. The HVX200 has plenty of "issues" (image and workflow) just different ones to the A1.

I chose an A1 over the HVX because the noise in the HVX's image can be a bit dodgy in the shadows, and the P2 workflow is a nice idea, but an expensive pain in the behind if you work like I do.

If you're renting I'd aim for something a bit further up the scale - at very least go for a F350. Now that's a nice camera (in the affordable HD range).

I see what you mean. That's good advice on the high-end rental. I've warmed up a bit to the A1. In the meantime, I'm gonna go shoot a music "video" on Super 8 (from Pro8)! Go figure. :P I do have a new Letus 35, so my plan is to hook that on to whatever I get and I've seen varying reports on how well it works on the A1. I'll look for more threads on that rig. If you're curious, I'll post pix of my new Letus on my old workhorse TRV900 somewhere here.

Hey, I just downloaded Mpeg Streamclip and I got to see your clips of the reflective water. I must admit this looked very nice to me. I'm going to look at more later. I've been impressed with all the clips coming from this camera.
