Varicam gets a lot of action in Music Videos is this neck of the woods also.

I would have said the Arri 435 is the most common camera used on Music Videos and Commercials.

It depends on your budget. The RED One would be good to use, The latest Ringo Star video was done with RED One.
We used Six Varicams for the Hank Williams Jr. Monday Night football (Open) video for 2007.
PM me if you need help putting together a budget & equipment list.

What look are you after? Many are still shot on 16/35mm, with Panavision /Arri, and many with digital aquisition. What does the DOP desire - Camera / Lens wise? And again as all else.. what will your budget allow? I've seen music video camera packages range from US$ 2,500 - 25,000.
