Right, I am currently using a Canon MVX3i (minidv) and also the Movie option on my Canon Powershot G9.

All quite good, not brilliant quality but ok.

I have been asked to make a film for next year to be shown on a projector screen at our local airport.

I think I had better upgrade my camcorder for this!

Money is not a problem and I do believe in buying the best you can to get the best results.

So, which camcorder has the best, in your opinion, moving picture quality? I am a competant professional photographer but I just want a fairly basic point and squirt camcorder - ie it will focus, zoom in, start and stop and, most important of all, some sort of really good image stablization system. I don't care much about audio as my films have musical soundtracks.

I do prefer Canon as a make for my cameras but could be easily dissuaded!

Could some quickly explain to me about HD too. Do you need an HD tv specifically for this type of film?

Thanks
Frances
