It looks Like I am going to choose between 3 camcorders....
The Canon HV20, the Sony HDR-HC7, and the Sony HDR - SR12.
(I am not done researching)
It looks like basically the price goes up as the image sensor pixel count goes up...Though...
I think it is important to have manul controls ... In that case it Looks like the Sony HDR-HC7 is best.
I am not sure because from what sony says...
"Take command of your pictures as you manually control focus, exposure, shutter speed, auto exposure shift and white balance shift."
I am guessing that auto exposure shift means that when you manually press a button the camcorder will automatically focus.
However does "white balance shift" mean that (Instead of Presets) when you manually press a button the camcorder will automatically white balance?
A simple Yes is fine or if not then please explain.
