Camcorder info has just done a comparison of the 4 major HD camcorders. Very good read.

Just checked it before coming here...

AVCHD is just not as good as HVD.
Normal Performance and Low Light Performance were great on the HV20.

I would like to see some HV20 clips of sunny days, and colorful landscapes so i could get a definite idea of how good it really is, because every clip i watched so far were inside home, or shot in a cloudy day.

HV20 is the winner...

But when will Panasonic release their 3 CMOS HVD Cam with Gain Control ahm?!


Waiting for it...

My favorite line of the article:
Quote:


JVC GZ-HD7 -- For a $1700 camcorder, JVC does not equip the HD7 with a headphone jack. However, they do outfit the model with an S-Video port. An S-Video port will come in handy if you frequently time travel back to the 90's to do your post video work.

I only miss 24p in HC7.

The article reminded me some other things that I had found lacking in the HC7, such as lack of aperture control and lower battery life, which are important to me when I shoot.

I sure with they would have added some cine mode comparisons, but I guess that would be piling on (in favor of the HV-20).
