I bet those cameras are far superior to mine (albeit bigger). One thing I dislike about Sony (mine anyway) that I failed to mention before is the lack of ability to add a mic. Not only is there no mic input, but you’re limited to Sony’s selection of mics which is minimal and they’re more designed foramateurs–okay for me, for now, but not much room to grow. Take that into account and make sure you’re happy with the add-ons you have access to through Sony–if it’s anything like mine, third party add-ons won’t work–mine only takes Sony. Check into that.
As for transfering, I LOVE the fact that mine records straight to a Memory Stick Pro Duo, and I can take that out and put it in my computer, copy and paste it to its new home on the hard drive and there it stays, forever. No changing the format, decoding it, etc. Just cut and paste. Then edit in Pinnacle or Premiere Pro (I use both). You cannot beat that. Make sure the camera can do that if that’s important to you.
