For some reason , I was unable to respond on another thread to Ric, who had snapped at Blindsight about some fly by night on line dealer for the HD2. So, here's a brand new thread.
Ric, after you've been on here awhile, you'll find that Blindsight and several others are very thoughtful and knowledgeable guys. They can save you $$$$ and grief.
I've dealt with these sleezy on line camera dealers in the past and still get angry when I recall the experience. They are frauds and crooks. Blindsights efforts to point this out to you should be appreciated,.......
To your question of which is the better deal between the CG6 or HD2, I guess it depends on what you want. I bought the CG65, myself, and really, really, like it. I have been pleasantly surprised at the low light results, the in camera editing, and several other features. I did consider the HD2 only because of the 10X zoom. Price had nothing to do with my decision. They are very different cameras.
