Who'd have thought that little ol' me would cause such a discussion!
Thank's to all who've contributed.
I was/am interested in the HDD technology, as...
i) it seems gadgety, and I love gadgets
ii) I'd no interest in changing/carrying extra tapes.
But after reading reviews about HDV, I've changed my way of thinking.
HDD based camcorders are still in their infancy at the minute, so maybe I'll upgrade in the future.
But for the minute, I'll stick to the tried and trusted HDV.
@ imagic: Thanks for your analogy. I like my cars (my nickname should tell you that!), and would alway choose an Impreza WRX over a Prius. So HDV it is, I guess.
@ David Susilo: Thanks for the info on the tapes and the batteries. Could you tell me if this is the reight battery
, and this is the right stand alone charger
for the HV20?
Now, feel free to keep the HDV/HDD debate going. It makes for great reading for a novice like me!
