Hello! I'm interested in getting into video/film... right now I mainly do editing with video others have taken. But I finally have some "spare" money to spend on my own camera. So I have some questions that I'd really appreciate some help with. Is HDV or AVCHD better? AVCHD is the future, but many people still seem to prefer HDV. I know some like to use tapes over HDDs or flash memory. And to my understanding HDV isn't truly HD, correct? What about compression and editing? I do have a very capable computer, so I'm not really worried about AVCHD being resource heavy. Tape or HDD/Flash Memory? I guess this kind of goes with the first question. Good Starting Camera? I'd really like to use it as an amateur camera (or prosumer I guess) for developing skills and learning about cinematography and other higher production type of videos. Something as a learning tool I guess. I'm pretty sure I want a Canon... HV30, HG20, HF100, HF11 (a little more than I want to spend). Thanks for any help!
