EX1 compared to the HMC150?

Hey guys, I want to know how the quality of the footage the EX1 gives compared to the Panasonic HMC150? I know both are totally different cameras, codec, price, etc.. But there's one thing they have in common, tapeless.... which is something I'm looking for in a camera.

I know the EX1 is 1/2" CMOS and HMC150 is only 1/3" CCD.

How good is the EX1 footage compared to the HMC150?

Thanks!
John

Go rent both cameras for a day and shoot some footage side by side. That way, you'll know exactly what you need to know.

Just a suggestion.

EX1 is a better camera than the HMC150. It's also more expensive. How much are you prepared to pay?

these to machines r totally different. From sensor size to codec to frame rates. EX1 is a pro cam while the HMC150 is more of a consumer cam.
