Derek,
The EZ1 was Panasonic's 1st Prosumer DV camera, and comparable in quality to the Sony VX1000. The EZ1 did not have a firewire port for downloading to a computer, but was a very good 3 chipper with a very clean image. It's large viewfinder was a strong point that carried over to the DVX (better than the tiny eyepiece on the Sony).
I know a producer that still favors it as a B camera on 60i shoots.


Hope this helps.
Ken

Hey Ken! Do you know if this camera shoots 24p or not. I'm so use to shooting with a viewfinder that that is the only thing that is keeping me from purchasing this cam. I got two offers from two people on this and then another one on the Canon Optura which this person is calling it the Baby GL1. It shoots 30p progressive scan mode and have RBG filter technology which separates the reb, blue and green just like a 3CCD cam. If you know anything please help with info

Derek,
No, the EZ1 doesn't shoot 24p or 30p; only 60i. Remember, since it doen't have a firewire port, you'll have to use another dv camera or a deck to get the footage into your computer.
I don't know anything about the Optura, but suspect it's 30f is not true progressive.

the EZ is still a great unit image wise even by todays standards..
features well it sucks, but back then the image alone was enough to sell countless units

yeah i don't know about the EZ1 now. Features are not there plus by it being so old i don't want to buy it from someone with all that mileage on it.

What features are you looking for? Just be sure to look for burned out pixels and make sure it plays records etc. It also can be set to a 16x9 image (I don't know if it uses the whole sensor) and you can set it to "frame" mode which is like 30p but not quite. If the price is right I would get it, always nice to have a good backup. I have one just for that.
