Before you answer with searchbar I have had a good look through other threads about camcorders and I know a lot of you rate the HV30 but didn't find much on the HF10. I wanna buy a cam and am trying to decide between these two. I know the HV30 is a safe bet but I am very tempted to buy the Flash based HF10 as I am a lazy bastard and can't be bothered capturing footage from tapes, the ease of transfer the flash cards would be a time saving plus. Also my friend has a HV20 which is trashed from falls and drops. the HF10 is marketed as being good for durability, its also smaller and therefore easier to ski with in my pocket. I am very concerned about image quality as i will be giving a lot of the suff I shoot to the Unity boys who are using a professional camera so i dont want the footage to be too far off the mark.
What would you guys suggest? anyone worked with the HF10? any imput would be greatly recieved with some ++KK
