Well I was just about ready to pull the trigger on a new HD camera...and had been through all the pros and cons of AVCHD in terms of editing, file size, storage, blah blah blah. Then I checked some sample vids to see what all the talk was about on panning and how not to do it. Short question is this: Does HDV suffer from that as well, or is it simply a limitation of AVCHD? Cause what I saw was really bad...bad enough to make me re-think. Regards, G. Edit: Well it seems I asked before I searched...bad I know. Seems as though HDV is just as bad...at least one person thinks worse. So, let me change the question. Would the panning issue go away with HDV if using something like a Canon XH-A1?
