I think this is an average deal; not burning hot, but definitely not overpriced. Check out the sample video posted further down; its great!

does this use miniDV?

GREAT camera (I have the newer model, the HV30, but they’re basically the same). Price is pretty good…not awesome, but not bad. I got the HV-30 new for around $800, so consider that.

Also, the HF-100 (also Canon, AVCHD, flash memory) is around $620 on Amazon. Picture quality is about 95% as good.

Yes.

$489 brand new here

Can you switch modes from HD to standard in order to save memory space on an Sd card or does it only shoot in Hi-Def which eats lots more memory faster?


#13

Quality is great. Here is an HD sample video made with the HV20.

I also own this camera, bought it new, and it’s freakin’ awesome! I have no complaints, setup is easy, taking good video is easy…editing is what will take time! lol.

Edit: Here’s a sample clip as well taken with the HV20…

amazon has the new HF100 + a free 4GB SDHC card for 629.99!
