Hi guys, right now im searching an in-between camera between my hopefully futre 2/3 cinema RED Scarlet and my crappy JVC GY-DV500u. Since we arent sure of the releast date of the scarlet and it wont probly be before FALL 2009. I want a camera that i will use this summer to pratice, to shoot since i just love filming and to pratice angles, depth of fields, locations, etc. Since im keeping my money for scarlet ( Actully i need to start making money since im just out of college :P ), I intend selling my old camera with its many many accessories and using part of this money for this in-between camera that im willing to pay around 800-1000$. Obvisouly, i want it to do 1080p and have ALOT of DOP, what im seing now is that most comsummer hdd hd camcorders dont have a focus ring to play with. On the other hand theres so new photography cameras that can do so full hd 1080p movie... So if any 1 can help on this on, it would be GREATLY appreciated :beer:

Please clarify? 1080p and DOF for $800-$1000? Or that's how much extra on top of selling your JVC you are willing to spend? What's total budget in other words?

Right now, 1000$ would be it, but i could go for a maximum of 1500$ Since i want to save for scarlet, I just dont want to get ripp of by Bestbuy bullsh!t salesman... Right now, what i found was theres too, first is this one : http://www.today-reviews.com/screenshot/2009/03/image.png witch has a focus, realy rare for consummer cameras and the second is the canonRebel t1i that can do full hd 1080p videos....

Unfortunately DOPs don't come free with most cameras :thumbsup:...did you mean DOF (depth of field)? And did you mean little DOF (shallow focus) as opposed to lots of DOF (deep focus)? If you do want a shallow focus (like most film makers do) then you'll be wanting a camera with a larger sensor - unfortunately most cheaper cameras have 1/3rd inch sensors so you're always struggling to get a nice shallow DOF. It's probably out of your price range even second hand but the Sony EX1 has a 1/2 inch sensor which helps make things shallower but obviously the Scarlet will answer all your dreams (even the 2/3rd inch one will have noticeably less DOF than most prosumer cameras out there). Good luck!
