I have a 20GB JVC camcorder, they are pretty good, really good functionality and easy to use, amazing zoom too. Quality is reasonable, and format is *.MOD which only edits in Mac programs and a program called Cyberlink Power DVD editor. It's pretty gash. Fairly good price though - photos?
"The GZ-HD7 shoots and records full HD images (1920 x 1080i) via a trio of CCDs (one each for red, green and blue). Further, it's loaded up with a 60GB hard drive that can store what JVC claims is up to five hours of full 1080i video shot with that sweet FUJINON lens."
"The HD7 can output in two different 1080i formats. The first, 1920x1080, dubbed "FHD" for "Full HD," uses variable bit rate compression for a theoretically better picture. The second, 1440x1080, dubbed "1440 CBR" uses constant bit rate compression, and is the HD format you must use if you wish to edit your video with iMovie; iMovie doesn't speak FHD"
Im not bashing his sale, im just speaking the truth. They claim "full hd" or "fhd" (wtf?) but unless its 1080p30p its not full HD. If you think im wrong well then think what you want, because you are actually wrong.
I know someone is going to say "dude the company says its full hd", well an FX-1, top of the line prosumor hd (1080i) camera doesn't even shoot full hd. Hell, the HVX doesn't even shoot full HD, it only shoots 720p30p.
thats beside the point...if hella expensive cams like the fx1 dont shoot "true HD" then you could say that about them too. obviously true HD is hard to come by, but this is still as close to HS as youre gonna get with that kind of money. good luck.
60p 30pn and 24pn, as in true progressive without pulldown, which can not be achieved with cameras that shoot on tape. Anyways the argument for "true HD" always goes on. You need a camera with a 1080p chip. EX1 isnt even considered true hd if thats how you consider it. HD doesnt necessarily mean "quality" its just a resolution size basically. An HVX in 720p mode will look better than HDV cameras in 1080i.
