Tape based cams give you an advantage in terms of reliable archiving. But a big disadvantage in terms of work flow. Flash drive storage is a likely future but are still quite expensive. Used is risky for a tape based cam. The HV30s were used quite a bit for B roll cams on some professional productions where a small cam was needed. SLRs take beautiful images due to their bigger chips but the form factor is not the best for video. The two are beginning to merge. Ideally you have the ergonomics of a camcorder and the larger chips of SLR.
