Maybe there's already a thread for this, but I've been brooding over this issue since purchasing my new cx570. Like most amateurs, I quickly realized my computer is not powerful enough to handle Sony's AVCHD files, for both viewing and editing. Naturally I figured out how to convert the files into wmv or avi (which of the two is best, by the way?). The switch naturally reduces resolution quailty I think, so I'm wondering about the concept of just shooting in standard mode (HQ 50i) until I have more harddrive space. What would I lose as a struggling videographer in regards to quality. I know shooting in HQ I will lose the widescreen -- does that mean my video will look unproportioned on a television screen?
