Prices vary, and i am keen to know more about financing a Sony Professional Camcorder for a sideline biz with a mate's film crew. hardly say I am the ardent pro, only been doing photography for a year, loved filming for longer but got stuck in IT jobs. I am not sure whether to buy or lease it. Would I be right in saying a lease so not owning it means I can get upgrades? This would be costly normally and my budget is not exactly top notch. I am new here. Seen some ebay options but I may join a friend in London, his small but growing film firm and I would be an asset with the right equipment. The Sony HDCAM looks great, the HDW-650P has all the features at a price tag.
