I know the HV 40 is a great cam. It's still being sold. However, what is the current sucsessor of this camera? I know it wont be around forever and I assume their have been improvments made. Which cam models have replaced this camera. Im also looking at getting the same look and feel of the footage that I am use to with the HV40. I barrowed my bothers canon cam, not in this lineup but noticed the color was different, and defiently not the same quality or iso quality.
Primary use will problably be for wildlife and weddings. May dabble into making a short film. Also, has their been any improvements made to the stablization? Im use to my sonys stablization which is outstanding. Again this camera is a few years out too, so maybe they improved on this too. What I hate about the sony is lack of custom control and the color is way to over saturated, not even close to the excelent color of this hv40. The sony is my cam and the hv40 is my fathers.
Im not to conserned on what format it uses as far as sd, hardrive, or tape.
