    You want honestly? ok well here it is!


    you are not going to get feature film quality out of a Z1e. While it is a 3cc cam, it has a fixes lens and you are going to need many lens options for a true feature.

    I have said it before and will say it again. I use JVC GY-HD200U

    cameras.http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/produc...Camcorder.html

    I love them, the features on them are amazing. I would not however get this if you are not good with a camera. The camera while an amazing par of my arsenal, is not a camera for beginners. It does have a fully auto mode, but is not that reliable that you will get a good shot. Mostly the auto iris and white balance are horrible. the FUGINON lens that comes with it is a real good all around lens.

    Depending on the money you have, there are other options.

    so here are couple questions for you.

    1. what is your budget for cameras and lenses?

    2. What is your skill level with cameras, and lighting?

    3. Are you going to be recording to tape, Hard drive, or both?

    4. Where in the world are you, some PAL cams i would recommend different then NTSC (ENG)
