    I shoot for the web. Is there any reason I should choose the HVX over the DVX?

    I dont believe that to be true at all. I think they are about equal, but the canon lens, being pushed further with a 20x shows alot more chroma abberation.

    Jeez Louise.. I can't believe Sony these days. When I owned a TRV900 10 years ago, I was a REALLY HAPPY man. A confident customer. But these days all Sony does is introduce yesterday's technology and downstripped stuff at a higher price than all competitors... It's really strange. I guess they must've done some circulation at the top level. New director(s) can't exactly be proud. They haven't realeased anything revolutionary for very long. The XDCAM EX Could've been a Pana KILLER if they'd released it earlier. But now: every station that needed tapeless has gone there.

    Seems like they're losing their market leading position... Especially now with the PS3 and blu-ray competitors too.. well well... I believe the company's management is not doing a good job right now.

    They'll probably come back even more aggressive in a couple of years and win back their position. (Meaning lots of goodies for us).

    This post was not intended as a flame post, just MHO.

    My suggestion, and I make no bones about this is, is stop reading the propogated bs and see the real world results.

    The great thing about the interweb is it spreads knowledge. The down side is it spreads bs. Your comments are rediculous insofar as they write off a cam without any evidence of capability. Im not going to make this too technical as I dont want to end up in a game of this is and that is like chidren. But just outright comments like that are based on first iterations of HDV not current.

    EDITED FOR CONFIRMATION

    Im not going to argue that HDV is beter than DVCProHD as with the much higher bandwidth of DVCProHD it more than makes up for the difference. But for a moment consider what the camera can achieve before writing it off.

    Fact -- DVCPRO HD is based on the mpeg1 codec
    Really? Never heard anything like this. Do you have a source for this?

    Agreed.

    With the new CF recorder

    These cameras look a lot more attractive. I believe the question now is the resolution of the chips and the lens features more than the on camera recording media- one can keep an HDV media backup and record a 160mbs 4:2:2 mpeg 2 intraframe master, for example.
