I have a Sony HDR SR11 – it is HD (AVCHD) and I love it.
That said, I don’t currently own an HD TV (maybe when I get the tax refund) or a BluRay player (ditto) so I watch my stuff on SDTV’s on SD DVD players.
I almost always film (record, tape, choose your verb here) in the best HD settings (1920 X 1080) and downconvert in my NLE on render. I also have been known to put HD on YouTube or Vimeo so it’s nice to have.
Going forward, I think you will find HD becoming increasingly and rapidly more commonplace (only a few things have a faster adoption rate than the BD players).
