Canon XM2 - Unhappy with focus and zoom - but rather VX 2100 oä. ?
Frage von kris: Mai 2006
ok, was not the first debate here about it, maybe someone still wants a say yes. My situation: for years with with JVC GY-DV rumgefilmt 500 and XL1s (Regional Television). Therefore, even once "spoiled". Now Ambition independence (freelance video journalist, first-time). Budget for Camera: about 2000 euros. Dream: GY-DV 5100 Twin AG-DVX 100 - but probably not for the money drumhours under 1000 to have - and to invest around 2000 euros into a (possibly) scrap heap, I'm too cheap! More obvious: vx 2100 - but it is needed. I just got now finally opted for the "most reasonable" option, a new model with warranty and 14 days of return - is one stop XM2 become. Is quite cute, the thing-could be synonymous my friend-good image quality for the money and so, BUT: What has annoyed me already s.der XL1, I find the little sister again, fiddly and slow autofocus zoom button. A good dynamic zooming (in the movie taboo, I know, for events with only a camera but sometimes needed) with Start and elegant soft landing - unthinkable. Before the aperture wheel, I've got a synonymous bissl fear. So my question now - can the VX 2100 all better - and therefore it is worth - to take the risk of a Second Hand? (And still the same way: the quality of a DV-FX1 really so bad that they only in the HDV range is actually used?) As I said, I still can revise one possibly bad buy - views please help me, thank you, Kris
Antwort von Markus:
The auto focus of the SonyVX2100 is undefeated, I can assure you from personal experience. Regarding the XM2 I had modified the following information:
Whether a used VX2100 is better than a new XM2, I can not have a blanket answer to you. Too many factors (state of the VX2100), decide what is appropriate.

I have often synonymous with the work VX2100 .. You can not complain really what it regards image quali ... but blendenerädchen example is quite synonymous with folded out viewfinder screen and fiddly to get ran not really optimal ... I did not use the zoom button too often, but is not synonymous as the ne plus ultra when you want to make nice "zooms" in the form of a clean (start) ride (stop) ...
compare with the xm2 habsch no ... therefore difficult to say whether and what now would be better for you ... s.besten advance easy fix times etc retail outlet in 2100 or take other cam Nahd according to the taste and how you cope with it come
