No, go with one of the Panasonic 24p miniDV’s. That way, it’ll look more like film, because it’s being captured in 24fps, just like film.
Or, if you still wanna shoot in the standard NTSC 29.97fps, get one of those JVC consumer HD cameras, which uses a standard miniDV tape. I saw some footage shot on one, and it looked really great!
I think one of the best ways to go is to get a PAL version of the JVC HD cameras. Because frame-rate for PAL is 25fps. 28 Days Later was shot on a standard PAL miniDV, and when transferd to film, looked pretty damn good.
