Sony HVR-V1U Videos Online


Is there a reason why videos on the internet made by the Sony HVR-V1U look so blurry? I'm just about to purchase a camera and I was convinced for the longest time to get the Canon XL2. However, I was attracted to the new Sony and the fact that it is HD however I have yet to see any video online from the HVR-V1U that looks better than one produced by a standard everyday camcorder. I know the down conversion erodes some picture quality but I haven't seen one video produced by the Sony that looks better online than the standard definition Canon XL2. What gives?

I'd suggest to scroll further down and check out the threads dedicated to the V1. There have been a few postings of still images from the V1, and in my opinion, it produces absolutely superb images- for a sub $5k camera that is!
