My main field is graphic design, so coming into cinematography I have *no* idea what I'm doing. =) Well, I have some idea... at least I thought I did, until I came here.

Just curious, does anyone know how these HDV cameras compare? Mostly with each other, but it would also help to know how they compare to cameras in general (around that price range).

Sony HDRHC3 HDV Handycam

Sony HDR-HC1 Mini DV / HDV

Sony HVR-A1 HDV

And how would HDV cameras like the ones listed above compare to products like these:

Canon Optura 60

JVC GY X3 3CCD SVHS

Thanks in advance for any information you guys can offer.

FYI, my budget really can't go any higher than $2,000. $1 ,900 for that Sony HVR is already pushing it...
