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

Please let me know if you’d like me to post other links in the future. :slight_smile:

4 stars on Amazon…

7.7 on Cnet…


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.


$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?

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…

this is a little pricey!!!

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

(better reviews and more zoom)


Horray! another crack at Larry Craig!!!

CMOS. but still an outstanding camera.

Wow, that’s pretty impressive for the prize. Or, maybe I’m out of the video loop. :stuck_out_tongue:
