Please check out these two videos. They are short (about 30 seconds total).
The first video is a composition trial with full croppage. The second, HV20 + some cheep wide angle test lens taped onto the camera (don't ask).
Both images were cropped from the original 16:9, 21% top and bottom. You could say I eyeballed it. The reason I tried a wide angle is to get more coverage and so I could be closer to the subject. When you cut 42% of your picture out, composition gets difficult. I also made a matte to place over my view finder for help in composition. Perhaps 42% is too much crop, I don't know.
Let me know what you think, and which you like better.
Version one: HV20 + crop
Version two: HV20 + Wide angle + Crop.
P.S. I didn't worry about the quality of the shots, only the composition.

The first link seems not to be working, these should help... I hope.
