MX350 verses XM2

Being a sinner I visit various cam forums from time to time, and I came across a good one yesterday. It was about 2 poker cams: the MX350 verses the XM2. The person who posted was asking if the XM2 was better, because it was newer, and if it is better in low light. I replied, "The XM2 may require a bit less light but I would just hang on to the MX350 if I were you." What do you think, Yow? Did I say good?

As of all things, COST must be part of the equation.

Sure, the XM2 is better in all, but here, it's $4500 vs $3500 (Singapore dollars) when both were avaialble*. $1000 can get me plenty of other stuff, for a little less zoom, and a little less sensitivity. However, the XM2 does have some nice controls.

* The 350 has EOLed since the arrival of the MX500, and the during the overlap period, the MX500 was $2800 and the MX350 was $3500. I bought the MX350 instead of the MX500 because I had a VERY special price of $2800. Now the MX500 is about $2000. Given $2000 for MX500 vs $3500 for MX350 and $4500 for XM2, I'll take the MX500 anytime!

Yes, you're right. Cost is an important factor, or at least it is for me as well. The cost thing, however, never came up in his post other than a price ceiling. I'm not up with British Pounds nor their strange prices. Heck, if you buy a cam in the UK, you pay big for DV-in, AV-in and S-video in, or so I am told. Poor bast_rds. :-((
