Yes, well first let me point out that I am not necessarily a "Sony guy". I'm a guy for the all round best cam... and the HV10 wasn't it. The ergonomics, the lack of HDMI out, small battery mic placement... yadda, yadda. IMO... the HC3 was the best all round package.... it contained a bit of everything. No sense in trying to talk me into believing otherwise. Of course NOW... that remains to be seen with the HV20, we'll see what the reviews say.
But more to the point, this thread is not what you or I am seeing... it's what OLIK is seeing... and he's asking for help in understanding what it is that he sees. Contrary to popular belief it seems, he's not asking to be labeled stupid or insane.
