    Cameras

    I was asked if we should update our current video cameras. We are currently using Sony HDV-Z5U units. These have the component connectors for our TC. Haven't really looked into new cameras in a few years. They are looking to upgrade and give our current unit to a couple of the ministers in other areas.

    So what I am asking for any suggestions? Price range between 3 - 4 thousand. Also we are not doing 4K videos at this time.

    Thanks,

    Jeff

    I was pretty happy with the Sony PXWX160 I bought in 2016. It's in your price range. Could send an output simultaneously via SDI and HDMI.

    If you don't mind the camera being small, I am using the Sony PXW-X70 with TriCaster, around $1800 and has SDI and HDMI outputs, XLR inputs. I use a VariZoom controller for zoom and focus on tripod handle.

    Which TriCaster do you have?

    Thanks

    I've got a older JVC HM200 which I've been happy with, the new model is the HM250. I don't think the zoom is has high as your Z5U units, (12x on the JVC). These cameras have SDI and HDMI outputs and are well under your price point.

    And the Sony PXW-X70 has the option to upgrade the firmware to have 4K, so even if you don't need it now, you could get it without buying new cameras.
