Guys and Gals, I have a TRV 10e , years old and it does a job, but I have tested my filming concept with it and now want to make short films for dosh therefore I think the viewing public deserves a better quality image. I've seen a few Sony DCR-VX2100 DV Camcorder reviews and also the Sony DSR-PDX10P . I'm assuming the 3CCD's on board will produce a much better picture? Also I know that Canon and Panasonic do high end prosumer models. But I have a few questions. 1. If I buy e.g the VX2100 is it a nightmare to use? i.e overly complicated 2. Is the picture quality significantly higher when edited on a package like Pinnacle Studio. Does the rendering process slow down even more because of the better picture quality? 3. Would I be better off (futureproofed) to wait for the Sony HD model the Sony HVR Z1E HDV to come down in price? If I get the HD camcorder does it produce footage that can be handled as normal DV tape input until such time as I'm ready to go HD? Sorry for the long post, but that's what forums are for right?
