The Panasonic is a much better camcorder.
OK... I've been looking into these two camera's pretty closely. I realize they use different formats. I can get either at a comparable price. Which one out-performs the other? My worry is that MiniDV might be on the way out with the introduction of the HDD camcorders. Would hate to dealing with an obsolete format 18 mnths from now.
Which is the better buy for around $550.
