Gy-hd250 compared to the Gy-hm700

I know I don't understand everything about camcorders but why is the GY-HD250 so much more expensive in compare to the GY-HM700.
They're both 1/3" 3-ccd, the 700 shoot in the real HD ratio (1:1.77) as oppose to the 250 that shoot HDV (1:1.33).
Is it the lens?
Is the HDV better then the HD output delivered by the sdhc card?

That's a great question. HD is better than HDV, no question. Better quality, better image, just better IMHO. The ONLY reason I could think the 250 is more expensive is the tape drive that the 700 doesn't need because it uses the SDHC cards. Other than that, I have no idea.

Thank you for your respond.
I was having a hard time choosing a camcorder but now I realy think the hm700 is the way to go.

Just asked one of my tech friends who talked me into buying the HM700. His answer: the HD250 is designed as a studio camera, with genlock, umbilical cord hookup, etc, which the HM700 doesn't have. Doesn't have much to do with the format it's recording in.

Depends on what you're doing. In a broadcast or multicam environment, you'd probably need the HD250. If not, the HM700 workflow is much quicker and more flexible for post production.

But when it comes done to picture quality, the 700 HD should be better than the 250 hdv, right?
