Looking for HV20 footage side dy side with DV (XL2)

I want to show some people just how different HD is from DV footage and, specifically, how the consumer HV20 looks as compared to a high end DV camera like the XL2.

Does anybody out there have a couple different cameras they could do something like this?

Thanks

Do you have an HDTV? If you don't, you'll never fully appreciate how much better the HDV footage is. In a word "no comparison"....OK, that's two words.

It's just difficult for me to make the resolution differences as completely clear as I'd like to. I mean, I showed some friends clips from the HV20 compared to DV clips, but they're of completely different things and it becomes an apples and oranges comparison. The different footage has different looks, but it's not just because it's a different format.

I thought about taking some HD clips from here and down-rezzing them to DV 'size', but thought it would be even better to show the exact same image actually shot with the HV20 and then with a more expensive 'professional' DV camera.

It's not a really big deal either way if nobody can or wants to do this. I just thought it would be a great way to really make the point that this little camera can capture images that are more amazing than people might think.
