I'm just not happy with indoor shots at all with the HF200. I've been looking at all of my footage from Christmas and it's just pretty rough to look at. Not one setting seems acceptable to me while being indoors. Not even cinema being its just too dark. I tried every combo I think and most of my shooting(with having a 8month old) will be indoors right now.
The kicker is when looking at samples of vDSLR. I'm so envious of their low light capabilities and sharpness. I almost feel cheated in my purchase lol. One would think that a dedicated machine would trump a hybrid one. It doesn't seem so.
Being I love to shoot Stills I'm half tempted in returning the hf200 for a Nikon D90(I have a D40 now). I'm just worried about the auto focusing, 5 minute max clips, and the d90 only having manual zoom. Bur from most of the clips I watched on Vimeo, the video seemed stunning.
So talk me out of it lol. There has to be way more advantages to owning a dedicated device then a hybrid device. I'll say this, even at a Nikon forum I belong to, In a thread I read a month ago(which helped my initial decision)nearly everyone recommended just getting a standalone device over the camera hybrid. So something must be there.
I only have a few days to return, so if I'm gonna, I got to do it quick lol.
