I was told by a salesperson in a Sony Authorsed Delaer that the TRV33 and the TRV80 produce exactly the same quality films. They obviously have other differences like 1/2M.Pixels on the single digital picture side, bigger LCD, etc , but when shooting video footage onto the Micro DV the Picture Quality is exactly the same on the 2. Is this realy true ? Another few software question , to do with transferring onto DVD. I am using Uleads DVD Movie Factory 2. Am I right in choosing to capture using CBR - 6000kbps rather than VBR - 6000kbps ? I also presume recording at 8000kbps is an overkill ? How can I tell how many frames are dropped in the capture with this piece of software ?
