So, I took the advice of this forum and went hunting for NV-GS120s and TRV-33s on Tottenham Court road on sunday and came back with the GS120. I have to have I am very impressed with the picture quality and even the "stills" feature seems reasonable enough for me not to bother taking my 3MegPixal Kodak anywhere. However, I made the schoolboy error of assuming that I could transfer video via USB2.0 (it is faster after all). So thats another £10 on firewire hardware. Anyway, should I be updating the firmware? I couldnt find any on google and any advice on tweaking the settings? (Things appear to be over saturated). Thanks again.
