As anyone looking into buying a camcorder will tell you, it's aggravating to find recent, relevant information reagrding which type of media is best to record to. I know this can be subjective, but I thought a thread like this would be helpful to get different opinions and perspectives.
I've seen this discussed/debated in other threads, but it is often buried down in the replies for some camera advice thread, or the thread is old and new advancements have come out which change everything. For example, a few months ago people might have knocked flash memory because the cards were too small or expensive, but now people like them cause they're light and have no moving parts.
So all I'm looking for here is some input from anyone with experience to discuss pros/cons of the different recording types (miniDV, HDV, HDD, Flash, AVCHD) relating to both ski/sports filming as well as regular stuff. Maybe we could also get into some discussions about buying older, more "prosumer" cameras vs. newer HD and what not. Who knows. For now my hope is that this could maybe get stickied and constantly be updated as new things are released and prices change or w/e.
