HDMI rocks

For the first time I watched my own HV20 footage on the 32″ 1080i HDTV via HDMI. In the past, I have done so only via component and while it was a good image, it was not as crispy-clear as HDMI can produce. I am in awe. It’s really amazing that these days for a thousand bucks you can buy such a high quality camcorder and for another 500 an HD TV. Broadcasters would kill for access to that technology just 10 years ago, and now everyone has access to it.

Hi Eugenia, can you post what camera equipment do you use? What do you use to edit? I know you have a preference for Sony VMS but is that what gave you the impressive results (plus the camera of course). Thanks!

If you were reading my previous blog posts the information is there. ;-)
Anyways, I am using a Canon HV20, with Vegas Movie Studio 8 Platinum and a 32″ 1080i HDTV with HDMI support.

It’s sounds like you are really pleased with the Canon HV20. Curious about your thoughts on the Panasonic HDC-SD1 and HDC-SD5 camcorders.

I checked the SD5 the other day with my husband. The Canon HV20 produces better picture still, although it’s HDV which can be a pain in terms of user convenience.
