Yes - you will notice the difference. How much ? It will depend on your own preception.
I have a TVR130 Hi8 Sony that captures tape at 460K. I am about to upgrade but doubt I'll burn much HD to start and plan to burn the footage to standard DVD.
Question: Do you think I will see much difference in the SR11 Sony HD camera from my old Hi8 Sony after I burn in back to standard non HD DVD?
