Question by Mario F: Which camera should I use to shoot a professional looking movie? should JVC GY HD100U be ok?
I’m looking to work as an independent filmmaker. I would like to try and produce my first feature film but don’t really know which camera to use. I want it to look professional and not home made crap. Could anyone give some suggestions? I was looking at a JVC GY HD100U to do the job. Should that be ok?

It is an excellent camera for what you intend to do.
Are you also the DP? The new mini-DV cameras now have the option of shooting at 24 fps (same as 16mm and 35mm film),so conversion later to 35 mm distribution prints is not as challenging a process as it could be if you had shot at 30 or 60 fps.
I am sure you know the script and the post production are the other two/thirds of the equation.
