Summary: How to convert DV tape to hard drive stable storage. Once converted, you can play back directly from external hard drive to PC to (via HDMI out from PC) HDTV. Quality of uncompressed data on hard drive is better than DVD medium.
The Canon Vixia HV-40 is an amazing camcorder for the buck.

Summary: I'm delighted with the HV-40. The tape technology is a little harder to deal with than the flash/SD. However it's an amazing, versatile camcorder, with lots of options for lens accessories, and a dizzying array of menu options.
Summary: I've had this camera for over a year now. It not only takes beautiful HD movies. It shoots well in low light (not perfect, but good) and as a bonus it takes great pictures. I thought for sure I'd need the eye piece, but don't ever use it. Even in bright light the display is fine by itself..
Summary: best deal I have had on ebay. I like the vixia h40 so much that I bought it ued on ebay as a temporary fix. I bught a brand new canon vixia hf-m500 and yet find myself using the vixia h40 over and over again. It just looks great!!
