Having sold my Canon MV200 I am looking for a replacement, I have begged and pleaded with the keeper of the purse (the wife) but it was to no avail, my budget at most is around the £250 mark which is a shame as I would have loved the Canon HF100 or Panasonic SD9, as we have a 1080 TV at home and I would have liked to have made the most of it.
I initially thought of buying another second hand MiniDV model but think now I want a flash based one, my reasoning is
- if its small I will use it more (I wont end up with a drawer full of MiniDV tapes)
- it will give me 16:9 widescreen
- easier to edit (currently use premiere elements 3)
Price wise as I see it there are two options the JVC MS100 and the Canon HS100 what I would like to know is what would the image quality be like compared to my old MiniDV camera?
I spent hours searching for samples on the web last night but all I can find is YouTube type videos I would like to see raw files.
Should I have kept my MV200 am I now going to step down in quality. I would say I am leaning towards the JVC camera mainly because of price, the Canon at £100 more doesn’t seem to offer that much more for the money
