Well guys, thanks for all of the input, it has definitely made this an easy choice in my mind. The only remaining question I have is, is AVCHD worth waiting for? I mean is the only advantage smaller file size, and isn't that an undesired thing? Thanks again everyone and I will for sure be posting some footage online when I return.

1080p is 1080i shot in 24p mode other words when you shoot 24p with the HV20 you are shooting 1080p

peace

Will it be possible to download a firmware update for an AVCHD camera and update how the compression works (allow better compression)? I can easily see how AVCHD could be the future if this were the case.

And yes, Vegas supports HDV and 24p since version 4, I believe it was released in 2003,
Good luck, and please. don't forget to post some footage from your trip!
Most programs support HDV so that definitely makes things easier.
But one thing I'm hoping with the HG10 that you don't hear the tape motor in the recording (since the hard-disk is quieter). Otherwise the HV20 has a few more options. Also check out the HG10 review.

Question is also when you are leaving. The HG10 will be available sometime in October and maybe even later.
