I really like the specs on the Canon TX1 and will probably buy one after reading a couple of reviews and actually handling one.

My question is:

If I video in HD mode but show the video on a standard TV or make a standard DVD out of it, will the quality be any better than if I'd just done the video in 640x480? In other words, to get the better picture, do you need an HH TV?

it may throw lines accross your tube if filmed in hd quality so it is best to read the manual of your device, it would clearly answer those q and a's

I believe you can film hdtv, record to a disk, and playback on the tube and you will not know the difference andwill work out fine

hd has a signal that will distort to lines, if you are going to use a regular tube?

I probably should just video in 640x480 until I get HD TV equipment. I'm really in it for the memories more than the highest possible quality picture. The Canon A710 I use now does a great job so I'm sure the TX1 will do as well,.....at least.
