My partner and I just picked up an HD1 to shoot a feature this summer. So far with all the tests we've run we've been extremely pleased with it. And for $1100 on Ebay, we really couldn't go wrong. We're probably going to be getting a Letus35 or SG35 for it as well.

Just remember, going from 30p to 24p is very tough.

My JVC HDV cam is like an old pair of sneakers to me. It's just the one that's been beat up from over usage so much but can't bear to get rid of it because it's so comfortable. Plus learning new things about the HDV format all the time, it's just like a gold mine to some people. I'm shooting a Noir project right now, and the camera looks phenomenal in b&w! I couldn't part with this cam for anything.

B&W looks great on the HD10, I agree!

True, but we're shooting on a shoestring budget so there's no way we'll get this on film unless we get a sponsor of some kind anyway, and at that point they'd be paying for it, so it works out well for us. ;)

Have you thought about the HVR-A1u or the HDR-HC1 from Sony?

Daniel, you better place that post in the 'DV for the Masses' section of this forum.

I own a HD1 and a HD10U and I'm very happy with them. Since I got the HD1 I have barely touched my GL2. Not to say it's better but I feel it's a better companion. Gotta love the beautiful color rendition, the 16:9 HD and sturdiness of the camera. Shame about the lack of manual control and chroma noisa but it's so cheap, who cares.

As to 30p->24p conversion I think 99% of small productions will never make it to the big screen, so I'm not worried.

By the way, what about everyone post a link to their favourite HD1/HD10 shots?

Here are mine (after cc):

Recently bought an Sony HC1 with the intention of replacing my HD1.

Now I'm not so sure ... love the Sony's form factor, decent monitor/LCD, and expanded focus. But really miss the JVCs progressive image, push-to-focus, and wonderful colors and tones.

Sadly, I think it's HD1's over-enhanced edges that (just) tip the balance for me - if only I'd bought the HD10.....

It's funny because I think a lot can be done in post that hides the exaggerated EE from the HD1.

I have seen some footage of the HC1 and feel it might be superior in overall quality to the JVC cameras, although it has the usual Sony 'video' feel.

Apart from the toy-look and lack of progressive I think I would get a HC1 today over the HD1, but I could regret it.

By the way Graham, does the HC1 have sharpening controls? And can you lock the AE as with the HD1? I know you can't lock both the aperture and shutter at the same time, like the JVC cameras, which really sucks.
