i am an owner of old digital video camera which is DCR-TRV480E.
Simply say Digital 8.
Bought it around 4 years ago and still using it for fun.
always edit my video to VCD and DVD format.
old fashion huh..
Now i have around 500-600 US dollar to spend on new HD-handycam.
i have an interest on SONY HDR-SR5E
it use a hard disk to record on to but i heard a lot about the cons on using
hardisk to record.
i wanna ask, is it better to buy the HDR-HC5E which use a tape to record on?
if i buy a HD handycam, i still want to make the video in vcd and dvd format.
therefore, i want to ask wether the quality of the vcd format increase or not?
i know the format is same and old, but the colour capture and so on will increase or not?
Also, can i use pinnacle 11 to edit the video from the hard disk or not?
is it editable or do i still need to convert it into some specific format.
i'm also interested into Canon HV20?
i have read a review that the canon hv20 is better than sony hdr-sr5e.
is it true?
Thanks in advance for your advice.
