I bought the Canon HG20 in Europe but I wasn't aware of the fact that it does 25p while the American version does 24p and 30p.
After researching a bit I have found out that 25p is better than 24p but didn't really understood why. Just know that it doesn't have the problem of 3:2 pulldown. I am still missing 30p though and wonder if I should return this and get an American Canon HG20 instead.
From what I have understood that 30p is helpful when it comes to fast scenes or lots of movements involved. Do I really need this function or 25p is enough really?
I have noticed that when I connect the cam to PS3 and try to view the video on my TV. The TV detects it as 1080i. I bought this camera in order to get 1080p and wonder if this has to do something with PS3?
Canon Europe support has told me that Canon HV30 can record in 1080p while Canon HG20 can't. I don't understand how when HDV tapes at best can only achieve 1080i.
The important question is though: Which one is better American or European Canon HG20 and does it record in 1080p?
