i dont think there is a difference other then color. the new models are cheaper to get them to sell. go hv40 then
Hi, I've decided to buy a Canon HV30 or HV40, I've read a few articles on the net in regard to both camcorders, (and I would greatly appreciate any help or advice you could offer) the HV40 being an upgrade on the HV30. So naturally I would presume the HV40 would be more expensive than the HV30, but when I check the prices of both camcorders online the HV30 is way more expensive (On Amazon.com -Canon VIXIA HV30 is $1,499.99 and Canon VIXIA HV40 is $712.96) I'm completely baffled by the differnce, if you could tell me why this is so or even better which camera you would recommend. Thank you for your help in advance.
