This looks like a pretty nice camera. It's not true 24p, which is sorta annoying. On the plus side, the ouput possibilities are really nice. But then again, there are Panasonic and JVC cameras that also record HDV coming out within the next two months that are about four grand cheaper and have most of the same features.

I'll wait a while before I invest in HDV. I'm about to upgrade from my old XL-1 to a DVX-100a, a model that itself is about to be eclipsed, but at least its technology is stable and not advancing every thirty seconds. A friend of mine bought the new Sony HDV camera seven months ago and it's already completely outdated.

The XL H1's Clear Scan feature lets you match the scan rate of the camera to the scan rate of computer monitors, thereby eliminating the horizontal band effect from monitors included in your shot.


that's cool

nigga pleeeez. now, yeah, but this'll be a doorstop in a couple years. it'll still be a good camera, too. wait a daaaamn minit, son.
Obviously what you are doing right now is called (in my upcoming book of psychology at least) validation. I think it's a normal thing to do. People will reply, say anything, and then you're gonna do what you were subconsciently thinking of doing all along.

The best thing to do would be to wait for a few more of these to hit the market and let them duel it out in comparative reviews.  In the next 2 years a camera will probably come out that will have many of the important features.  

Plus, you'd need a ton of hard drive space to edit the footage yourself anyways.  And that gets cheaper all the time.

This is why I'm still using my Sony DCR-TRV130. If I upgraded, though, I'd probably go Panasonic.

The new Panasonic HVX200 is going to be DVCPro HD not HDV.  And it will have true 24P, with 1080P in a 1080i signal.  Plus 720P among other formats to shoot in.

I think the Cina-Gamma in the DVX-100a makes it less video like than other comparable cameras.
