In my line of work with the camera we require a lot of still frames with the footage and I take aprox 1 frame for every 15 secs of footage and have had no noticeable CA problems as of yet. My stuff is mainly people indoors. We have found the quality so good we have been able to do away with a still photographer in a lot of instances.

Thanks everyone for your honesty and opinions -- however, I just learned of the new XDCAM EX for under $8k that's coming out this fall. This will be the unit I will wait for.

This is a wonderful community, and I value it greatly!

The XDCAM-EX does, indeed, look to be very cool. But in addition to the $8K you have to buy the Sandisk cards. No doubt they'll be cheaper than P2, but even so to get enough for serious documentary work or extended shooting, my guess is it's going to cost a couple thousand more. And then you'd want their very cool portable XDCAM HD burner so you can archive your footage to XDCAM discs, which is an excellent solution to the solid state tapeless workflow problem. So by the time you get the system, it's probably going to be over $12K instead of under $8K. However, it's a 1/2" chip XDCAM HD camera comparable in quality to the F-350. It really isn't in the same category as cameras like the XH A1 and Sony Z1, etc. It's more of an XDCAM HD "B" camera. I think it's going to be awesome, but a different animal.

True, but all said and done, I think it better to save $3k I would spend on an XH-A1 now and save for a camera that'll be out this fall (I won't buy till next year) that is closer to what I've been looking for.

My HVR-Z1U will tide me over in the meantime.

Thanks.

Brandon, if you currently own a Z1, you will absolutely do the right thing waiting for the new generation cam rather than replacing it with either the V1 or A1! I'd do just that if I were you.
