A VX is a camera known as the Sony VX 1000.
A DSLR is a Digital Single-Lens Reflex camera, common ones are Canon DSLRs such as the T3i, 7D, 5D etc.
HD stands for High Definition and is not a camera.

---------------------------------

Sony VX1000
[LINK TO IMAGE]

- Released in 1995
- "Raw" look
- Popular for skate and BMX filmers
- Arguably the best fisheye look on any camera
- 4:3 Standard Definition (640 x 480 aka 480p)
- Companies such as Cult and Fiend use the VX1000
- Hard to get since they were discontinued in 1997
- High demand from skate/BMX filmers price these at around $800 even in these times
- Uses tapes

DSLRs
Photo
- E.g. Canon 60D, 7D, 5D MKIII
- Extremely popular these days as they are easily accessible
- Films in High Definition 1080p
- Photo camera with video recording capabilities
- Interchangeable lens
- Zoom sucks for video compared to a DV camera
- Accessories such as a Glidecam/Eazy Handle are basically a must have otherwise your footage will be shaky
- Has a more "art/cinema" look compared to the VX (Another reason why some hate HD: "ermagahd i don't want my edit to look like a fucking movie, it's a bmx video and it should look raw")
- Probably the best DSLR user in the BMX industry is Joe Simon known for his Mutiny videos.

HD Digital Video Cameras
[LINK TO IMAGE]

- E.g. Panasonic HPX170, Panasonic HVX200, Panasonic HMC150
- Popular choice for many companies
- Basically a high definition version of a Sony VX
- Usually has better dynamic range compared to DSLRs
- Can zoom well unlike DSLRs
- I don't actually know a lot about DV since I use a DSLR
- Christian Rigal, Mike Mastroni etc use HD DV cameras

I believe in starting off with SD DV cameras because they actually teach you about filming along the way, with them it is trial and error and it just makes you better

It's not the camera that would produce a good edit, it's the cameraman.
