      I’m looking at buying one for a couple of projects I’m going to be shooting next year.
      I don’t really want to spend too much over $1000.

      So far I have look at the Canon VIXIA HFS10 HD

      and the CANON VIXIA-LEGRIA HV40 HD HDV/DV

      any recommendations?

      Thanks.

      I own a Canon Vixia HG-20 that records to hard drive and also has a SD card slot for back up. The hard drive capacity on it is 60 gigs, but you can get the Canon HG-21 that has a 120 gig HDD. The HG-20 cost me about $600 but the HG-21 might be close to the $1000 price tag. You might find it cheaper if you search the net. Both cameras take excellant high definition video. Good luck.

      Thanks. Very helpful πŸ™‚

      Do you think the cameras I listed in my first post are better then the HG-21?

      Because they are around the same price range.

      If your budget is aimed at $1,000 maximum, then the Canon HV40 or HF-S10 models are probably your best bet for High-Definition at a budgeted price. The HV40 is an HDV camcorder, while the HF-S10 is a flash memory AVCHD camcorder that records an amazing 900 lines, with full HD recording at 1920×1080, and its offers are abundant in terms of auto/manual controls. If you don’t have a full-functioning NLE with a Dual or quad core processor, then editing the AVCHD format will at best be bothersome. If you go for the HV40, then you’ll have to edit the MPEG-2 transport stream, which is quite a bit less of a hassle.

      Thanks for your help. Very helpful!

      I have recently just came accross the Sony HVR-HD1000. I found it for only <span class=”pricedisplay”>$1,177.00 from </span>https://www.zwee.com/store/checkout/

      Right now I’m tied between the HV40, HF-S10 and the Sony HVR-HD1000.

      Which one would give me the best possible video quality?

      Thanks
