    anyone own this, has used this and can confirm it has true widescreen filming or not?

    whatcamcorder mag review states it does have true widescreen, yet the specs on the internet do not mention it?

    cheers

    That doesn't mean it is a 16:9 chip, just that it can 'do' widescreen..... A big difference

    I have a DCR-PC109 and it has a wider megapixel ccd to accomodate true 16:9, but according to Sony's own product catalogue the HC14E does not have the same ccd.
