then skip HDD and go with flash memory.
The file types are the same, the camcorder electronics are the same - and none of the breakage, altitude, vibration or data recovery issues associated with HDD.
Canon HF or HF S series.
But if you want a real camcorder, then you'll stay with miniDV tape...
Canon HV series.
And these recommendations are from someone with two Sonys...
In the market to replace my old Panasonic MX500.
Looks like miniDV is on its way out and HDD is in.
Looking for one that can cope with low light scene well.
Panasonic HDC-HS300 looks appealing. 120Gb of capacity.
The other one is Sony HDR-XR520V with 240Gb capacity.
for comparison of spec
Which one would you prefer?
Any others I should also consider?
