I've been using my Canon HV20 for about a year now, and after saving about 5 grand, I've decided to upgrade to a better camera.
Should I get the DVX or the HVX? I'm leaning towards the DVX only because I still put faith in SD, but this HD craze makes me think that it's a better investment to go for the HVX. Will the DVX be completely obsolete in a few years?
Ditto what everyone else has said. The DVX is definitely a step up from the camera you've currently got but if you can afford the HVX that's a more future proof camera. HD is not a 'craze' by any stretch of the imagination. All US networks and many cable channels have been broadcasting in it for years.
Even if you still shoot in DV but want 16:9 the 200 gives you that without the upscaling or that beautiful lens adapter. Oh I miss those beautiful blue streaks, thank goodness Magic Bullet has a setting to put them back in!
