They're all just tools we use. No more.

They won't make any of us a better filmmaker. Pick one with the features you like and feel comfortable working with and handling and go with it.

Just think, most of the films that are out now were shot with REALLY expensive 35mm arriflex cameras and they still suck hard (my opinion)

Rent or borrow a few of the cameras you're interested in, play with them, and go with one YOU like.

Trust me, you'll be happy with your decision in the end :)

The part where this thread was not locked right there and then. If we discuss the merits of both, especially those of us who own or use both together all of the time, we are simply exchanging knowledge of which tool is better for which applications.

In addition I posted a link to a DVX/XL2 video i shot. This was not test footage. It was real world shooting without any ideals other than to make the cameras intercut effectively. This should show that either camera can do an excellent job.

As Chris often says, you really need to pick the camera that feels the best in your hands and for your shooting style.

Peace!

Good idea Marty. I am locking this thread now. It surely contains enough info and links for someone to make an informed decision.

Thanks to all contributors!
