Here is a statement that I want clarified as I am new to HD:

Unfortunately 1080i sells cameras because people think they are getting higher resolution. Unfortunately picture quality does not sell cameras because if it did everyone would buy 720p. Now I am not saying that 1080F is bad. A lot of factors determine picture quality such as the quality of the camera and the lens etc. But I do not think that 1080F is better than 720p.


What's the major difference in the two formats and which is superior?

The major difference is between progressive (720p) and interlace (1080i or 1080f) capture. Do a search. There must be 10,000 posts arguing back and forth ad nauseum, ad infinitum. Not just here, but all over the internet. Better yet, go look at the output of both cameras and decide for yourself. There is no substitute for seeing it with your own eyes.

For a good debate on 1080i versus 720p check out this website.
