Thanks for the feedback. I'm leaning more toward this camcorder. I just want to clarify something. The Sony HVR M15U which David mentioned lists for $2,800. That is not a option for me. It is important that I'm able to get the videos I take, which will be in HD onto my father's, the grandfather to be's, computer so he can edit them. He's using Sony Vegas six, which I believe will edit HD material. My question is how to get that material over to him?
Can I burn my HD content onto a standard DVD, have him upload that material, edit it in HD, and then burn it onto a standard DVD which I can then view in HD over the Xbox 360's external HD? If that's the case, I'm sold. I'm assuming that if I send that DVD to relatives who don't have a HD DVD player, they'd be able to watch the disc but only in SD. Is that right?
