Hey guys. If you remember, I told you that in our film class, we were debating on getting the new Panasonic AG-DVX100 or the Canon GL2s. Well, we didn't have a Canon GL2, but we did have an XL1s. So a professional videographer and I went out with the Panasonic 24p and the Canon XL1s. We shot the Canon XL1s in it's normal mode, and of course we shot the same scenes with the Panasonic 24p on both 60i, 30p, and 24p. Let me tell you, the Panasonic BLOWS the XL1s out of the water. The image is twice as sharp in my opinion. There is NO comparasion about which is the better camera. The Panasonic was also set to Cine-Gamma and Cine-Matrix, which made the dynamic range and color MUCH more professional looking. The camera in 24p mode is indistinguishable from a real film camera in my opinion. It most certainly doesn't look like camcoder footage. It looks like the real deal big budget film stuff. I HIGHLY recommend this camera. We are getting two of them, and we be shooting the remaining scenes of The Soft Drink Menace in 24p mode on this camera. This will be the camera to put all other DV cameras to rest. It also has many manual features such as focus, iris, netural density filters that give it unsurpassed image and color quality. No, I do not work for Panasonic...ha ha.
