For the most part, I have to agree. My friend has a mini-HDV Canon that can make some sweet looking video, but he has to mess with getting the image to the PC and doing all that takes patience and time. Plus he has to mess with all the tapes and wonder if he's recording over something. With mine, the image quality is equal to his and I don't have to mess with tapes of course. The AVCHD format isn't the best, but with the Sony Vegas software and a fast PC, I simply convert them all the Windows Video format and those retain the same quality and 5.1 Dolby surround that the AVCHD does. Bottom line, since I found the solution, I'm pleased with it.
