Since MicroMV encodes at 12 Mbps could you record it to a Blu-ray disc? I can make DVDs from MicroMV but there are significant encoding artifacts because of the double encoding. Once being when its recorded at 12 Mbps and again when it is re-encoded at under 9.8 Mbps for DVD. I know that Blu-ray can record up to 36 Mbps of MPEG-2 but I know little about MicroMV and whether it uses standard MPEG-2 encoding or something else.

MicroMV uses an aggressive compression scheme that is not supported by any other manufacturers. Last I heard, Sony is ditching their MicroMV line since camcorders size is not an issue anymore. Recording to Blueray doesn't make sense because of the extra cost of the equipment. Remember, you still are only recording standard definition with a single CCD device. I would suggest waiting for more HD camcorders to hit the market before looking at buying a blueray recorder. I have seen the top 3 CCD camcorders compared to JVC's HD1 and the diffence is incredible.
