With everyone somewhat moving to the REbels and 550Ds cause of their full manual control and probably slightly bigger image sensor, that gives a great advantage to record many things (like low light) and without having ot add additional lenses to achieve Depth of Field.
However, with the HV cams, they are still good camcorders but just the lack of full manual control but able to provide a good image, their smaller image sensor doesnt help too much when it comes to low light, however i would like to ask htis, in theory if we were able to record raw data, we would have plenty of data or image information to mess with? For example if we filmed in the dark in raw, we could take that footage and assumingly 'recover' the data that we would normally loose in dark places in the image.
Am i technically right in this department? I am just speaking through thoughts with someknowlege inputted, ut i am just wondering what would be the case. Could we potentially match the 550D in image quality if that was the case and yet still have the better camera?
Also what is interesting, either way, if the move from the HV's to the 550D becomes more potent, where does this leave us with our HV20, HV30 and HV40's?
