Just got the HV-20 this Afternoon

Just picked up the camcorder this afternoon, Local Miami Photo-Video store
pre-ordered about 3 weeks ago.

The battery is charging as I write, hope to post some QT movies soon.
I received to my surprise the wide angle adapter WD-H43 I say surprise because they were able to get it somehow yet I did not see it available anywhere yet, but I had preorder it.

First impressions off the box: light, not too bigger than the HV-10, which I also have, with the WD-43H ( which is huge) it certainly makes it more intimidating as a bigger camera. The real difference in ergonomics from the HV-10, are the control buttons, more easy to use in all respects at least for my hands.

Now if I could make my mind over which Mic to get, I like the Rode VicMic that uses separate power source, but the Canon DM-50 is nice because you don't need wires. Which is best quality? I don't know.

I'll try to post some jpgs later, Clips will take a little longer.

Thanks
Luis
For those in the Miami Area, Pitman Photo received only 4-5 units, I don't know if they are Pre-orderd like mine.
