The new wave of large chip cameras
The fast explosion of DSLR shooting speed it up the development of large chip camcorders. Today the major video camcorder manufacturers are fighting for the best large chip cameras. There are 2 options in the market for the prosumer level and one option for the entry professional level.
The prosumer level cameras are:
AF100 – made by Panasonic
FS100 – made by Sony (release at the end of the summer)
Both in the range of US$5,000
The professional entry level is the Sony F3. It goes for US$15,000 with no lenses and US$18,000 with three prime lenses.
There are a lot of good places to research and understand the best option for every person. One of the best places is the personal website of Philip Bloom. He is a filmmaker with a lot of experience in all of these cameras as well DSLRs.
I took a video from his vimeo page and I removed some frames so we could compare side by side the 3 video cameras and the DSLR 5D. The full video can be seen at the bottom of the page.
