I've been looking at the latest Sony Camcorders, and I know that I definitely want to go the hard drive route so I can simply copy and paste movies from the camera to the laptop . I also know that I want to have the ability to shoot widescreen. With having 2 young children growing up, we want to chose a camera that will not be totally antiquated next year.
If I go the HD route, will I still be able to display the video on non HD tv's? Or will it simply require me to convert the video's to another format?
Right now I've been looking at the HDR-SR1 which seems to fit all my needs including HD, but I could go without HD for half the price.
