Sony HC40 or Canon MVX200i? I'm looking for my first Camcorder. It needs to be DV and I have about £400 I can spend. Well i have done lots of trawling through the internet and forums and have narrowed my choice down to these two. I can get the Sony for £419 and the canon for £386. They both do roughly the same things. I like the fact the Canon takes SD cards, I hate the fact sony want to push their propriaty technology as always. The sony has a few more features but the canon by all accounts has better picture quality. I will be watching the results of my recordings on a PJ so really want as good PQ as I can get. Has anyone any experiance with either of these two, and can recommend one over the other. has anyone had any horror stories. I have heard issues with recording tape spindle noise on both. Thanks all.
