Unprofessional? Well, if you say so.
If you don't use your camera (like a lot of us) then you need a playback machine that can handle HDV. Quite expensive though and no better than using your camera.
I record on my expensive camera and download using a less expensive one. As suggested above, use an HDV20 (or 30 or 40) or by a studio machine (but that's $$$ unrealistic).
