Have one, I would recommend going solid state though, maybe either the hf or hg series by cannon. If your set though with getting an hv30 there great, easy controls, nice picture quality couldn't complain.
Everyone be reppin the tall tees I be reppin the small tees.
I've heard that sometimes the audio quality is a bit poor, is this true you think? I've also been looking at the sony FX7 which is a lot more money, so i'm leaning towards the HV30 at the moment because of the price really.
the canon hv30 is basically the premier camera under 1000 bucks. picture is great. optics are crisp. sound is great..ive filmed live concerts with it and it sounds real legit. i love the thing and if u know how to use a camera..u can come up with some really sick shots. especially if u no the little cell phone trick that locks the gain
i cant ski. i just film and take artsy pics with an expensive flash i dont know how to use. dont hate.
