Hi,I'd like to get in world of Wedding videography.
Right now I have Panasonic GS400 which is good camcorder but probably not great for weddings.Can you recomend what camcorder should I buy??
It's good to buy HDV camcorder at this time as I heard it's more complicated to edit a footage??

Thank you

VX2100 or PD170. These are wedding workhorses with best low light capability. They are 4:3, however, so if your future is 16:9, while these have that setting, the result is not as good as dedicated 16:9 cams.

This is my quandary... What cam, that IS dedicated 16:9, would you recommend?

I went the FX1 which is 16:9, both HDV and DV. It is a bit bigger than the PD or VX, but handles very similarly. On the less expensive side, there is Sony A1.

FX1 is decent in low light, though not as good at PD or VX. A1, from what I have heard, has a hard time in low light.

I am not familiar enough with other options out there to make a comparison.
