why the hell do you want to purchase this old expensive camera, out of any known standard today.
for the price of a new one (between 1000-1400$) you can get a decent 1080 HDV camera. (HC1 recommended)
If you really insist, i can sell you mine.....comes with an underwater case...

I guess he wants a progressive cam, not an interlaced one. It is still the only low cost HDV progressive cam, and he didn't mention how much it cost.
Tony are you using FCP?
If you get stuck there is a forum on this site that is dedicated to HDV editing.

I think it is reverse as far as old-fashioned goes. Nothing is older then interlaced ;>)

For a newbie, an HD1 might not be ideal. It's not exactly an easy to use, point and shoot camera. One of the newer 1080i consumer camcorders could yield better results, much more easily for a newbie, and be converted to 720p in post.
