So i have access to a HVR-z1u.. but i keep reading about a not true 24p and no real HD. "gives a maximum of 770 lines vertical, not 1080 as promised". also - it's a tape camera. non the less, many people send it nothing but praise.

i was wondering if i should save up some money and invest into something liek this? -
Canon VIXIA HF G10
I like the double flash memory card feauture... would very much prefer that over having to work with tape. has true 24p, and a fat resolution.
to me it seems liek the g10 is a better (and cheaper?) solution overall. what do you guys think? got any other suggestions maybe?

I plan to make music videos (hip-hop) and maybe some general film work
ur input is much appreciated
