We want to buy a (prosumer)camera primarily for imag (to capture bandactivity on stage; so it should not be too heavy to move around). I've read in this forum that the canon models (XL1, XL2) do not go well with the vt4 because they add 1 to 2 frames of latency. Has anybody experience with the fx1 (oder z1)? Does is add latency too?

We have done informal tests between a DSC-D30 and Z1U and found that there was no visible difference in the latency of the two cameras. Of course, there is a latency on the switcher so in essence, they were both delayed by a couple frames.

Despite the inability to change to a better zoom lens, we love using the Z1U for imag over renting d30's.
