Our Top Picks: Pro Cameras
Panasonic HVX200 and Sony Ex1
We were really attracted to the interchangable lenses of the Canon XL H1S, but the minimal compression of the Panasonic HVX200 has won our favor. A close second is the new Sony EX1. Both the HVX200 and EX1 record to flash media at 1920 x 1080 resolutions, but the Panasonic HVX200 is unique with its advanced color pull down scheme and DVCPRO HD compression codec. The Sony EX1 ranks a close second due to it's popularity among underwater housing manufacturers and it's larger 1/2 inch chip size. You will certainly see footage from these cameras in the 2009 TV season.
