Moving from Standard Def to HD

I'm finally trading up from my Mini-DV Sony VX2000 to an HD Panasonic TM700K.  I've had that Sony for 7 wonderful years but I just don't want to shoot SD anymore now that I've been working with HD.  720x480 isn't enough resolution for me now.  I knew that once a sub-$1,000 1080p camera came out I'd make the transition.

I'm excited to once again have a camera around to shoot in my studio.  The slowness of working with a tape format camera was preventing me from shooting for a while.

Anyone else make the transition?

    Hey Mores
    I had been using standard up until about a year and a half ago when I bought a HD canon camcorder in New York. You can switch between standard and Hd but to be honest since shooting and editing in Hd I havent even tried the other option.
    The major downside to Hd is the postproduction headaches,downloading time,burning of blu Ray and amongst other things thenfinal presentation of the work which needs also to be in Hd obviously. I just completed my Masters of fine art show in which I had a two channel HD video installation so im quite broke now! Im very happy with the results though. I'll post some images on arthood soon of the installation

    Great minds think alike. I've read about fan noise issues but I usually use an external shotgun mic if the audio is really important. Have you had any problems with fan noise?

    Hypercardio external microphone. If u have got some problem with fan noise, it can be better to use an external recorder. One person with videocamara and one person with sound recorder. U can have got some problem of syncronisation in post production but if u never stop the videocamera u can keep sound syncronisation.

    In post production for sure u can apply a filter with voice frequences as that you cut all fan noise...
