Sony Single chip in a water-housing

Greetings,

I'm interested in picking up the A1 or the new sony HDV camera to use as a B-camera and crash camera.. as well as an underwater camera on a few productions. Anyone have any experience in using the camera in an underwater housing. Equinox has one for just over a grand.. so that makes the cam and housing a pretty sweet deal.

I'm also hoping to use it as a B camera to my HVX.. especially under low-light situations as I've been impressed with this cams low-light capabiliity.


Also.. seems like a lot of stuff lucking in the wings.. Should I wait? I don't have to shoot this stuff till the fall, if necessary. I would however love to get a cheap HDV camera to throw in the glovebox and get some more secretive and covert footage. Hard to do that with the HVX...


Thanks all.

You think the A1 has good low-light capabilities? Or are you referring to the HVX? I sort of regret buying my A1 a couple months ago with the upcoming new products, but still, HDV is pretty good.

There's always going to be new products and different products with different strong points and weak points.
Rejoice in the strong points of your A1 !
