Got myself an HD camcorder from the US. My older camcorder is a Sony and records to Digital 8 tapes... I thought it would be good to upgrade to a flash-based model and since we're in the high-def era might as well spend the extra bucks and get an HD camera. This thing is AWESOME! Video records in full 1920x1080 and is crystal clear... as with all Canon's, the colors a brilliant. Definitely a good buy!
