Filter Ring Adapter

Filter Ring Adapter
What type of professional Video Camera would you suggest for short movies? (around 1600-2000 $)?

I would need one with these features on: manual focus, iris – white balance -ccds – headphone jack – sound control -filter ring – lens adapters . I would also need it with some automatic function that could help me with the manual work.

Lets start with defining “professional video camera”. My definition:

1) XLR audio-in connectors for using XLR connector based mics.

2) Lens diameter or 60mm or larger.

3) Imaging chips 1/3″ or larger.

4) Manual controls – Audio gain, focus, zoom, white balance, aperture/iris/exposure, on the outside of the camcorder – not buried in a menu.

5) Headphone jack.

6) Save to least compressed video format – DV or HDV, HDCAM (Sony) or DVCPRO HD (Panasonic). No AVCHD for high definition; no internal hard drive.

Basically – most of what you have on your list – but more complete.

There is no new “professional” camcorder with all this that meets your price point.

Standard definition:
Panasonic AG-DVX100
Canon XL2

High definition (and standard definition):
Sony HVR-Z1, Z5, Z7
Canon XHA1, XLH1
Panasonic AG-HVX200
JVC GY-HM100

If you reduce your requirements to “prosumer” (replace the XLR audio-in with 1/8″ – 3.5mm stereo jacks), add the standard def Canon GL2 and the hidef/standard def Sony Hdr-FX7 and HDR-FX1000 to the list. Add an XLR adapter (like those from juicedLink or BeachTek) to use XLR mics.

ALL can be used in Auto mode until you learn to use the manual controls.
