actually get press - that others read and use as a guide...
1) Shows a misunderstanding of 24p vs not. If you want HD-DVD or BluRay video quality, then use the cameras filmmakers use - not a consumer camcorder.
2) Shows a misunderstanding of what people want to upload vs what they end up uploading - and complaining about the quality and "poor low-light" characteristics.
3) Agree with the first half for "ease of use". Second half shows a misunderstanding of how business works. Using this logic, I should buy gas from GM or Ford or whatever auto manufacturer. Or ALL the applications on my computer should come ONLY from that computer manufacturer.
5) Agree - to a point.
6) Shows a misunderstanding of how DVD authoring works - and what Grandma wants. Grandma does not care about HD - standard definition is she needs, and all she gets. The DVD authoring takes care of that - Not a big deal.
7) Agree - to a point. Shows a misunderstanding of technology. miniDV tape stores digitally - and is as digital as a hard drive or flash memory or DVD - just in a different digital format. "... seems so, uh, analog"... but it isn't analog, so why even attempt the comparison?
Agree - too bad a camcorder had to be singled out...
9) Regretfully, I agree.
10) Picked a camcorder and backed up why it was picked.
Four useful points; three half useful points... 6.5 out of ten... uh... no... Not accurate enough. But that is just my opinion.
Just found an article 10 Things to Know When Buying an HD Camcorder, I think this is quite a nice article if it can be more detailed. Anyway you can have a look at it if you want to get a hd camcorder.
