What do YOU think is the best handheld video camera out there for +/- 1 grand?
I know you're not asking me but I still feel the need to butt in.
I don't think there's any handheld camcorder that will beat the GH1/2 under 2 grand.
In my opinion, the GH2 is the best DSLR(technically an EVIL but I say DSLR because it has a similar form factor/shape) with video capabilities under 2 grand. The only drawback I see it having it that the sensor is SLIGHTLY smaller than a t2i/60D/7d sensor, which doesn't perform quite as well under low light but who wants to shoot under **** light anyway?
It really all comes down to aesthetics... People tend to prefer that soft dreamier look on canons but the GH2 has a more organic film look too it. I can't really describe it but I suggest watching videos to get an idea.
A couple of GH2 vids:
Canon T2i, which looks the same as 7D/60D.
Not the best comparisons because of varying factors like better color grade/editing that might persuade you to one side more. But this should give you a bit of an idea.
btw, can you embed vimeo vids?
