Question by James: Which camera should I use as an independent filmmaker: Canon XH or Canon XL2?
P.S. Would it be right to still use a MiniDV JVC camcorder as long as I give it a 35mm look (since that’s the professional-looking look required)? If so, how do I achieve this? Because I heard somewhere that you can use a “35mm adapter” for camcorders, though I can’t seem to verify this.

Canon XH or Canon XL2? It depends if you want to do standard definition or high definition. Both are fine, pro-grade, camcorders.
Which JVC miniDV tape based camcorder do you have in mind? Some can accept a 35mm adapter – most cannot. But the JVC GY pro series would be up there with the Canon XH or Canon XL2… As would be the Sony HVR pro series and Panasonic AG-HDX200 series…
