HD Cam or Standard Cam?? help

by DdubV / May 11, 2010 8:31 AM PDT

Okay so I'm planning on buy 1 of the two camcorders -
The sharper image 1080p 30fps and 720p 60 fps 5 time zoom
http://www.bestbuy.com/site/The+Sharper+Image+-+HighDefinition+5.0MP+Digital+Camcorder+with+3%22+Touch+Screen/9921527.p?id=1218195466291&skuId=9921527

And the -

JVC MS120 Standard deff. 40 time zoom.
http://www.bestbuy.com/site/JVC+-+FactoryRefurbished+Everio+Digital+Camcorder+with+2.7%22+LCD+Monitor+-+Garnet+Red/9654111.p?id=1218139148809&skuId=9654111

Now the laptop I edit videos with (mainly for freerunning) is somewhat old with standard deff video. 1080p runs at about 3fps and 720 at 9fps with freeze ups. I was wondering if i could still put the video files in sony vagas 9.0 and still have it upload on to youtube in hd (I dont mind the lag dude to the frame by frame options on vagas for editing) or will i get error messages and be crap out of luck? I do like both cams but im going with quality over the 40 time zoom, attached light, and better mic position but only if i can at least use the hd cam what so ever.

video rendering on a slow computer

video rendering on a slow computer shouldnt effect the final output

dont get too caught up in the HD hype, that "hd" cam is low quality. and especially if youre going to be running around with it, the video will come out bad. if you can do without the 1080p, the jvc will be much better

or if you can do without zoom get a kodak zi8 and recor din 720p60
