HD vs. SD is an old topic. Think of it this way, is a great book better if written on a computer vs a typewriter?

>>The problem is that you do not shoot in high definition. Lets face it if you don't shoot in high definition your customers will think that you are no different than Uncle Charlie with his single chip camcorder. <<

That comment is so untrue. 99% of customers don't care about the technical side of video including HD vs SD or 3CCD vs 1CCD. Sadly, they care first about price and second about the basics like steady shots, composition, clean audio and non-cheesy editing. The HD hype is overwhelming and there are posts on other forums from those already regretting that they bought the first round of HD cameras.

There is still no delivery media for an HD wedding. Unification talks between the Sony Blu-Ray and Toshiba HD DVD formats recently failed. So, there will really be no choice in HD DVD players, let alone recorders for some time. The only valid technical argument I buy into is native 16:9 capability. Brides won't be asking for HD before 2007 but they might be looking for w i d e s c r e e n much sooner.
