Just about to get a new camcorder and am concerned about the resolution. Film clips I have seen from other people tend to be small and pixelated due to low resolution, that said this may be because they converted the raw DV image into MPEG1. If I archive the footage into MPEG2 DVD or MPEG4 Xvid is the resolution really sufficient on the 800k pixel ccds? What difference do the 3 ccd cameras make in terms of image quality, is the resolution higher? Other than image quality these are my personal requirements: 1. Image Quality / Resolution 2. Good Lens 3. Image stabilisation 4. Good optical zoom 5. Easy to use + remote control 6. DV in/out 7. Relatively compact 8. Good low light (perhaps infra red capability) 9. Good sound i.e. reduced motor recording pickup I'm not worried about stills as I have a good Canon G3 for that. My budget is up to £500 but obviously less would be best The Sony and Panasonic range look like a good bet and I would also consider the Canon's but for the obvious mentioned problems!
