few questions AVCHD camcoder have a bit-rate inferior to HDV's ones but the algo should in the near futur solve the superiority of the MPEG2. AVCHD are using the xvcolor (or xvycc) meaning much more info... how does that really compare since there is this drop in bitrate. This does sound a great idea on the paper but what does that do in real life. Is it the case of the next technology's first attemp, that is not totally ready for the time being? or can we already see a clear difference On the subject on the AVCHD HDD camcoder (sony and panasonic), there is the posibility to just burn the movie onto a dvd... i couldn't find anything about it but could it be that an external usb2-HDD would be a good partner to empty the camcoder hdd or is it a no no? i mean can a external HDD directly be pluginto the camera and files be move or is there a need for a computer to be connected? I could see that sony is releasing products BDplayers and flatscreen/projo that have the xvcolor... does anyone have an idea that it would mean the BD have already this color gamut or is it something to come in the furtur.
