What are some recommended HDV handycams (like the HC7, etc.) that had the composite, component, firewire, and especially lanc? Or is lanc exclusively a Sony thing?
Thanks

HDV is dead.

I believe Canon XA20 has LANC. You don't need FireWire for file-based cameras.

I've a lot of tapes to transfer but now that I think about it, I don't need the lanc much anymore.
Just looking around for a used handycam the size of my old HC5 that went kablooey.
I just need the analog signal to my monitor.

I just learned all Sony hc series are flawed with the flex-strip breaking.
I only shot 10 tapes in 7 years when mine broke. I'm simply switching to a Canon for now.
Yes, HDV may be dead but it's a great bargain right now.
Where else can you shoot HD with a cam made for video for a little over 100 bucks?

Canon HV20, HV30, and HV40 are great cams if you're still into HDV. The build quality isn't quite as nice as Sony but the output quality puts Sony to shame. In fact the canon PQ still rivals some of today's 1080p stuff. (And yes... all of my Sony HC cams had flex strip problems)
