2007 April 20th, 16:12
On this site (http://www.fxsupport.de/21.html) you can find a german professionalīs footage of HV20 compared to Sony HC7.
Note that this is PAL-version, so where shot in 50i you have 20% more bits per frame (20% less frames/sec), and where 25p (any?) you have 15% more bits (20% boost due to absent hard-telecine, 1 frame more resulting in ~ 5% less bits).

Here's the page translated with Babelfish (http://babelfish.altavista.com/babelfish/trurl_pagecontent?lp=de_en&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.fxsupport.de%2F21.html)
http://www.freetranslation.com/web.htm is another tranlation site and translates some sections better than babelfish, but I don't think the link I could provide will stay valid, so you'll just have to copy and paste to see their magic!

there is a very interesting update on Wolfgangīs HV20 page:
no new footage, but three pics:
two of them HV20: one auto setting, one with contrast and sharpness set to -1 respectively, another pic with HC7.
If you look at the three pics (especially at 100%) you will notice visible differences in dynamic range (right word?):
the HV20minux1 has by far the best "reproduction", but may seem a little boring to the consumer eye (we are mostly low-budget-prosumers, right?),
next comes the HV20original, then with quite some distance the HC7 (seems horrible...)
However, I noticed that even he changed only contrast and sharpness, the color seems to be effected too: look at the herbage and compare original with minus1: the minus1 has much less yellow tones and more "pure green". itīs as if minus1 is with polarizer.
PS: since itīs not really reviewing the HV20 i didnīt bother to link to a translated version
