That 8 minutes on a tape is just wrong. If the tape mechanism is a standard miniDV (DV25) mechanism, it will just record plain old DV25 - unless I've missed some information somewhere.

There is also the colour sampling. DVCPROHD and DVCPRO50 is 4:2:2 whereas HDV is 4:2:0 which is half the vertical colour resolution of the other.

'wrong' being a typo, a mistake or 'wrong' as in 'why bother with tape' ??

Oops, I see there the ambiguity could come in. I'm saying "wrong" as a typo. I had a quick look through the camcorderinfo article and is this the sentence you're referring to?

When asked by this publication about why users should pick a HD P2 solution with only 8 minutes of video combined with a normal, SD DV tape, or HDV as other manufacturers are offering, Jim Wickizer, a Panasonic spokesperson said one word: "Quality."
If so, I think you misread. They weren't saying "you get 8 minutes of video ON a normal SD DV tape", they were saying "you get 8 minutes on p2, and a normal SD DV tape mechanism that can only record SD" as opposed to one on an HDV camera that can record HiDef.

I thought about getting a HD100 till the HVX200 comes out and then if I like it better, sell the HD100and get a DVX. But I'm afraid of the HD100 not holding it's re-sale price, specially after the HVX200 comes out. It's juts that I have a project to shoot now in summer and would like to shoot some flavor of HD. I guess I will just have to shoot it with my trusted AG-DVC200 :)
