I have been enjoing your videos for quite some time (especially hockey) and learning quite a few things on the way.
We don't skate division one:( and light at the youth hockey games are pretty bad.
I did have TM700 and kind of hate it, could never get white balance right and exposure was jumping up and down all the time.
I currently use Panasonic FZ150 and like it as a universal travel kit, but I don't think it suited well for indoor sport shooting. Videos are not smooth.
I hoped Panasonic will address this with new FZ200, but I can see same problems at the other people videos and tests.
That is why I am seriously thinking either get back to camcorder or NEX. Seems from your experience NEX is not good fit either.
Which one of those you would recommend: Panasonic V700/Sony CX580/Sony GW77 or Sony HDR-CX260V - I like the price
or anything else in that price range.
I really like idea of GW77 - it is a toy looking piece and no one expect great quality from you.
Here is an example of FZ150 video - mine https://vimeo.com/50991091
And here is FZ200 test from Vimeo: https://vimeo.com/50898608
You can see there that video is not smooth - I cannot really put technical term to it.
Thank you for your help.Edited by bobk77 - 11/20/12 at 7:01pm
