Which recording format produces the better quality video – AVCHD or MPEG2 long GoP ?
I came accross a statement somewhere that the quality of video shot at 50Mbps MPEG2 long GoP is roughly equal to 24Mbps AVCHD. If this is so, why then is MPEG2 long GoP considered to be broadcast quality but not AVCHD ? For me to have a better understanding of this, will help me to decide on which camcorder to buy – i.e the Sony HXR-NX5 or the Canon XF300 or Sony EX1R.
Any thoughts on this anybody ?
