Sharpest camcorder under £1000?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
As I watch all my playback on my 120" projector screen, it really shows up a soft camcorder. Just wondering which camcorder produces a lovely image especially towards sharpness. Panasonic x920 as a guess?

There is no doubt the Panasonic 9XX line puts out the highest-resolution images. But, having both a Panasonic TM900 and a GW77, and viewing them on 55" plasma screens and 80" projector screens, I do not see much difference in sharpness. The GW77 is not a "soft" camcorder.

The Panasonic looks like 1080p to me were as the GW77 looks like 720p

Can the x800 get close to the image of the x920?

I wanted videos from when I owned the Sd600 and then movies from the Sony GW77. The SD600 is miles better picture quality!!.

I am now selling the GW77 image is very soft

Controlling depth of field (DOF) will give you a sharper look than you may think 1080p would allow - Hollywood does this all the time.

Easiest and cheapest to use a DSLR and a larger aperture lens to give effective DOF control.

I have tested camcorders and DSLRs, and you cant match a good camcorder sharpness, even with shallow DOF

just watch that: https://vimeo.com/21536302

and one more thing: shallow DOF is not for every scene. using too much sDOF is actually ridiculous



edit: in good light the new V720 is very sharp, and its very cheap! and it has a massive zoom: 800mm optical!
