ZDNet has posted a story on Four great camcorders for summer. The top two listings are simple cams, but they still shoot 720p HD video.
There are some “real” camcorders here too, that record AVCHD to SDHC cards (the Panasonic HDC-HS300) and hard drives (Sony HDR-XR520V). But everything listed is HD. This is a major turning point in the consumer electronics industry, in that high-definition has now reached the level of mainstream. So as far as we can tell, there’s really no reason to consider SD anymore. That, and you can still find some great deals on HD LCDs.
How far we’ve come in such a short time… wow.
