Hello, I am in the process of finding a camera-upgrade, as I use Final Cut Studio quite a lot, and the work I do requries me to get something better than the NV-GS300 (Panasonic), that I have managed to get along with until now. I do some multimedia work, mainly for DVD's, web etc, but I will also try to sell advertising for local TV etc. Anyway, I was halfway determined that the XH A1 would be the best choice for me, until I talked to the salesperson that was totally anti-HDV. Which leads me to my question; Is HDV THAT bad? I know it's compressed and all, but will it be that difficult for me to do simple greenscreen things, color-correction etc? I'm just wondering, because an HVX200 is kind of above my price-range for now, but I don't want to buy an XH A1 if the quality of footage I get is no good for postprocessing.. Any ideas? Are there any real alternatives for the XH A1 in a comparable pricerange for my use? Noen that is not HDV that I have found, is that correct..?
