OT - looking for high end Sony equipment

I am going to rent some Sony high end equipment (yes, in this case it has to be Sony). What is the best HD cam I can get? I am going to get a mic/lav as well, so any experience someone might have with that, the better. thanks

The Cinealta?
The F-950 or something?

Actually, that's a guess, but that's the pretty most high end stuff of sony isn't it?

Sony Z1U is your camera.

Sorry...it took 4 minutes instead of 2 seconds like promised.

best HDCAM

For a documentary, your best bet would be the Sony F900 Cine Alta.

It's MUCH more mobile than an F950, because it is a one piece camcorder.

You're going to spend $1,000 or more per day for the rental, you definitely want a field monitor, and a lavaliere. I suggest a field mixer/soundman as well.
