Hello from Cape Town

Good morning!

We are a husband and wife team of wedding videographers. We shoot with 3 Canon XM-2s (PAL GL-2), 4 iRivers - with Giant Squid lapel mics, standard lens, Canon WD-58 wide angle lens and a clip on Raynox semi fish eye lens. We use 50 watt, on camera, lights. Editing is with a Adobe Premiere Pro 2. We started the business in 1995.

Perhaps the international mixture of this forum can help me to answer this question? I was sent this picture yesterday. It was taken at a recent BSA Police reunion dinner, in London UK. It looked like they were recording the gathering with two cameras on tripods, without lights.

I am interested to know what cameras they were using. I want to write to the owner of the cameras and it would be nice to be able to refer to the make and models. They will be PAL but there is usually an identical NTSC equivalent, although the model number can be different.

Can anyone help me, please.

Cheers

.

Sony DSR-PDX10P camcorder

Hi Howard,

I believe that both those camera's are the same and they look exactly like a Sony DSR-PDX10P camcorder I have had one for about 5 or 6 years. I'm in Pal land too so it will be the same model number. Its a 3 CCD, mini DV/DV Cam camcorder that also comes with a removable(removed in that picture)XLR fitting that also takes an external microphone.
Can be setup to take true widescreen pictures. Only problem I ever had with it is that it isn't that great in lowlight.. . . .well compared with a Sony PD 150 anyway:-)
Used it as a work camera(like you mainly weddings) but it was great when we went on holiday because you could remove the audio component and you had an excellent, compact camcorder that was easy to take anywhere.

Thanks Mark. I wondered about the lighting. All the pics which they sent are very dark.

Cheers
