Re: [videoblogging] Awesome new camera?
- Josh ... I now have both at least until I sell my HVX. In some ways
the HVX is easier as it has built in lens. As for the P2 .... once
the P2 workflow, or any tapeless workflow is worked out, it's real
easy. Essentially the same process whether it's P2 or SDHC cards.
P2 is pro and workhorses, SDHC doesn't have a very long trackrecord.
Again, once you learn the workflow, it's a piece of cake.
