Below is a link to a clip I made with the new camera and editor, and although the quality is degraded because it is from youtube.com, you will see that it's 10 times better than the old stuff that was all solid state recorded. this is for using when I am sailing.

Pretty cat. What model Video cam is it? I'm not sure I'm in the market for another new toy, but it is something to consider.

It's only a PV-GS39 using Mini-DV. It has a fair amount of features for a 300 dollar camera. The reason I didn't go with Mini DVD or the new Hard Drive cameras is because of two reasons: There poor quality in low light situations, which they are working on, and the fact that they compress data, which I was told by multiple people that it degrades it when you go to edit them on a computer. My question was how it would when they're digital, but they still said the compression-decompression-compression did that. I don't know. What I do know is the one drawback of digital tape is that to do the editing on the computer I have to play and record it at real time from the camera, which is a bit of a pain, since I've been used to just transfering files from my little cheapy DXG, but still, much better quality. My friend Brian and I want to circumnavigate the Sea of Cortez in 2009 and do a film project on it that is marketable, but for this we are going to go with a High Definition (HD). I nearly shelled out a grand for one of the smaller Sonly HD models, but the thing is, the format, technology, and price are going to change drastically in the next two years, and I shouldn't spend any money on that yet. One issue that I'm having is using USB2 to transfer video, which does work, although I am wondering if digital firewire would be a better option. The camera ha a Firewire plug on it, but a firewire cable is another 50 and direct interface card with a firewire port for my laptop is another 50, and even in Oregon where it was tax freee, I didn't feel like shelling out another hundred. In any event, the quality when posted to youtube.com, which also degrades the quality a little because of their compression, is still 10 times better than the SD Card camera I was using before, so I am happy with the purchase.

Thanks for that extra info. I was thinking about the comparison with an SD card video, and you've provided it!

Here is a link to a video I did using all footage shot with my old DXG which uses an SD card for storage. You will see the difference in lighting and quality, although Panasonic does make a HD model that records on SD Cards, but it is very expensive but very good too... I think for that one a 1 Gig SD card will get you 20 min of video, 2with the new High Capacity SD Cards (3+ gigs) this will soon be a nice option, and I predict in the future everything will be solid-state anyway.
