Thanks for taking a look...
I'm having a little dilemma of giving these two camera's a fair shake.
I originally went to go get the Sony HDR PJ580V for $470cdn on sale from $899, but there was a Canon Vixia HF S30 just sitting there. They want to sell the floor model to make way for the new stuff... $399cdn. I'm having a decision to make because they are in two different worlds at two different times. The floor model looks in ok condition, but has seen some use.
My plans for this camera is an entry level camera for shooting training videos as a side gig. Work my way up to a bigger and better camera. And yes, I don't really care about the fact the Sony has a projector.
