Thanks, I plan on making a decision on whether to upgrade to HD now or wait until after our trip to India in Nov. You have been most helpful.
Thank you very much for the information. Does Final Cut Express provide all the features you need to edit HD video? Can you do color correction and audio adjustments?
DOn Which editing system do you use? Any problems with the sr12? The sr12 is one that I am considering but have an older Mac G4 with Final Cut Pro software. I plan on upgrading my computer and software after I buy a new video camera.
I have an hdr hc1 (mini dv) and a hdr sr12 (hdd) the hdr sr12 takes longer to move files to the computer than it takes the hdr hc1 to capture from tape. This is due to the sr12 having only usb2 connection vs the hc1’s firewire. WHAT THE HELL SONY???? NO FIREWIRE? they both edit fine for my purposes. the sr12 has better lowlight performance. better exposure accuracy. but the hc1 has tape for storage, which is easier than hd and cheaper (if you account for the fact that hd needs a backup). Plugged into a cheap battery pack (with ac converter) and the sr12 can run for 10+ hours of recording non stop. Another plus. nice to have both.
I have been using a Canon GL2 for several years for travel video and have been very happy with it; however, I have been looking into buying a new HD video camera with a hard drive to expedite the editing process. I use a Mac G4 with Final Cut Pro for editing. Are there any problems with doing this upgrade or will I be better off to stick with the Mini DV tapes? Any recommendations on a new HD Video Camera to replace the GL2?
