I've been looking for a nice HD camera for the family for a while now, and I figure I should either get the HV20 or the HDR HC7. But first I have a couple of issues: 1. What's so special about the HV20's 24P? Is it's primary purpose for recording in low-light? 2. (More of a request) My wife thinks an HD camera is too expensive. I've tried everything I can to convince her that we need one, but she says we don't need one until we have kids! She's been a really tough cookie to crack on this issue (getting a camera, not having kids). My new strategy at the moment is to have MacRumors members email her explaining one or two benefits of HD that they have personally experienced. -- Therefore -- If you are reading this and you can remember a personal benefit of going HD, please email her to lobby on my behalf: firstname.lastname@example.org Help a brother out!
