NeoHDV or NeoHD for HDC-SD3?

I currently have a Panasonic HDC-SD1, which produces 1440x1080i AVCHD files. The demo of NeoHDV works great for transforming to Cineform intermediate format.

Now, I'm considering upgrading to either a Panasonic HDC-SD3 or Sony CX7. If they produce AVCHD files at 1920x1080i (SD3 for sure, not clear yet on the CX7), does anyone know if I need to spend the extra $350 and get NeoHD instead or will NeoHDV be sufficient?

Thanks for any info,

Michael

NEO HDV will work fine with AVCHD 1920x1080 sources. While HEO HDV will scale them to 1440x1080, none of these cameras can actually resolve a 1920 image, so no detail is lost. NEO HD does encode the full 1920x1080, but you only really benefit with higher-end cameras -- or the convience of square pixels can be nice for effects work.
