Dear All, I am considering the purchase of my first camcorder, probably the Panasonic NV-DS28, with a view to editing the results on a PC. I have a widescreen telly with which I will view the footage, so I would really like a camcorder that is best suited for that. I know the DS38 has a 'widescreen' option on it, but does the DS28? Does it just record two big black strips at top and bottom, and will I therefore be loosing quality when my telly effectively magnifies the picture? I would also like to output the footage to VCD, and eventually DVD when the hardware is a little cheaper. Is it possible to film in 4:3, and then reformat it to 16:9 on the computer software. Would Pinnacle 7 or Ulead 4/5 do this? So many questions....can anyone help?
