I ordered a new camcorder last week, since there will be a new actor joining, soon…
I had a long discussion with a close friend and finally decided against the Panasonic HDC-SD 707 (/ HDC-HS-700 / HDC-TM 700) and for the Sony HDR-XR550VE – which I will pick up later on.
I am really curious how the quality compares to the Panasonic, since it offers 1080/50p and has three sensors compared to one on the Sony.
The reasons for getting the Sony is the availability / price here in Switzerland and the built in GPS, which I will definitely use to geotag my videos (still looking for a solution for my Canon DSLR).
Comparison report will follow here when I had the time to properly compare the two… stay tuned!
