Hi Susan, you're in for a little bit of a wait... the HV20 won't be available for about two months yet.

Susan, I suspect the footage will look virtually identical to the HV10. If you like that footage, you'll like the HV20. More features and better low-light.

That was HV10 footage. I am looking for hv20 footage, which I hope some Japanese sites, bring that up, from a pre-release model.

I'm pretty sure that the HV20 is going to become my first camera! I can't wait to get my hands on this thing...

That's why I labeled it as HV10 footage. Just to give you some idea...

Don't expect the HV20 footage to look that different...

Both cameras use the exact same CMOS chip and image processor. Even their lens properties are the same. There won't be any difference between the two as far as the video is concerned... the readily available HV10 clip from Canon will give you a clear indication of what the HV20 will do.

The only "unknown" at this point is the 24p mode. Expect some downloadable video later on as we get closer to April.

Splitting these posts out as a separate thread...

I thought I saw something about the HV20 having a slightly lower lux rating for night-time shooting, and lower noise overall, than the HV10.

ok then, imagine HV10 footage slightly brighter with slightly less noise.

What about high motion scenes? I read on this forum that the HV10 was poor in these situations compared to the HC3 (wich also has the rolling shutter problem)

24P is not going to help that! :)

That is correct. Canon advised me today that it will have the same quality as the HV-10 but in a rectangular shape. Again.....April release date.

The decision to change the shape was done by their marketing people. It appears consumers want the aformentioned shape over the vertical style. Personally, the vertical style fits my cycling and touring lifestyle. Nice and flat, small and compact.

That was the reason I sold my HC-1. Too bulky for my travel purposes.
