Well hey everyone.. This forum gave me some great help when i was looking for a new cam, so thanks again for that.. i went with the HC5 as it was in my budget and had all the bits i needed... However, being human.. i began to see more flaws in it, and now i wonder if i am being to picky.. Recently i saw some footage of water and some ducks in a park on a HC1 and it was compressed to a 200 meg WMV file.. I was blown away!! Im sure i cant get quality like this from my HC5.. or can i?? If i was to sell my HC5, what should i be looking at to get that extra quality that looks like the HC1 ??? Of corse.. i cannot see the HC1 anywere now. Any help would be great! Thanks guys..
