I'm very happy with my girlfriend's 7.1mpx and my teacher's 5.1mpx cameras. :shrugMyFullSize said:DONT BUY A DIGICAM THAT DOES VIDEO
You will NEVER be happy with it's video quality, period.
MyFullsizeMyFullSize said:Hi8 is very good quality, but D8 is even better! D8 will give near DVD quality, the high dollar XL1 will give professional quality. Plus, you can plug your DIGITAL camcorder into your computer and download video directly via FireWire! This is one of the prime reason I got the D8. It rox! :thumbup
MyFullSize said:Sorry Six, no... D8 (or D-8) is Digital-8, its DV on a Hi8 tape. Its the same video format as MiniDV, only its a different storage media. DV is DV, but theres different imagers that will yield different video quality, and theres different media formats to stor it on (Hi8 tapes (D8), miniDV, DVD, etc..).
Actually there are two different DV formats, DV1 an DV2, it mainly has to do with the way the computer CAPTURES the video, but on the media, its pretty much all the same.
Just FYI, Ive been into digital video since before digital camcorders, Im pretty well vested in every method of video capture and editing. Im also an amature videographer.
