    Which one is a better investment? I currently have a Canon HV30 (basically brand new) that's great and I've only used it a handful of times, but I'd love to go tapeless if the quality will be the same. Any thoughts? Thanks!

    do you rly want to know?
    go for the HF series. it works very well i have the HF S100. don't know if its the same series but mine works very well. 1080p 24mbps vids look great.
    EDIT: i did some research. there seems to be few differences between the one i have and the HF200. the major dif seems to be a lack of digital zoom. that is the only one that stands out to me and the HF200 seems less compact than the HF S100 to me at least.

    i have the HV30 and love it.
    Shoots in low light super awesome.
    I love miniDV for many reasons, so I think that's the really big thing you need to think about. Tape vs Flash... the debate goes on.

    optics are awesome.
    stabilization is great.

    my buddy has a hf200 and he would get an HV30 if he had the chance.
