    Hi guys!
    I'm about to purchase a camcorder in order to shoot wildlife and nature shots... My budget is around 6000€ (as mentionned in the title) and i got some kind of a dilemma...
    Sony PMW EX1, Canon XLH1, Canon XHA1... for now i could buy any of these or maybe wait a few months to take the Sony PMW EX3.

    For some reasons of image quality and sensors size i would go EX series
    For reasons of good optic lenses (20x zoom) i would go Canon series

    XLH1 and EX3 have interchangeable lenses that would fit the purpose
    But the EX3 is far away from my actual budget and the XLH1 seems to me a bit more low in quality than the EX1... And nature shots needs good resolution and picture quality. Besides i'd rather prefer the tapeless workflow

    I can't decide...
    Any help would be most welcome!
    THX

    your choices are mouth watering being stuck with a humble FX-7 but it does have a great lens 1133 mm 35m equivalent with the d extender.all the cams you mention would do but obviously the EX-3 is the best cam but also the most expensive.
