    Depends on what issue you are talking about.

    If it is blur from 24P, well, that's largely dictated by the frame rate and temporal resolution. Given the same frame rate and shutter speed, the blur will be identical.

    However, there are differences in how the sensors scan. The HVX reads out the entire sensor at the same time, something the EX doesn't do -- it has a rolling shutter. When the camera pans or zooms rapidly, or if an object moves quickly through a locked shot, that can cause distortion problems that are difficult not to notice.

    Regarding handling, if you aren't putting the cameras on a tripod, I would suggest some other support system like a DVRig. Neither camera is one you want to hand-hold for extended periods.

    As far as startup times are concerned, the HVX takes a couple of seconds (I'd day between three and five) when you turn it on, but there is no lag when you actually start recording, and in video (not film) mode, it can pre-record so that your recording actually includes a couple of seconds from before you pressed the REC button.

    Hmm - true, although the Z7 is looking really good - tape and Memory at the same time!

He not only doesn't like the blurr in motion shots he really hates the looooooooong start up time (and has actually missed shots because of it) and the terrible way it off balances in one's hands. He's negotating trading it off this week in Cleveland and if not then in LA next week, opting to get an HVX200.

    They just shoot HDV Ronnie so there shouldn't be any problems at all.
