Hi all, been quite confused the past month and I'm hoping some of the members can help out. I''ve been through a lot of the posts on the Sanyo Xacti's but theres still a few general questions I have which I'd like answers to in laymens terms.

I'm considering either the (Sanyo Xacti)CG65 / CA65, CG6 or HD2 and my main priority is video quality.
  • CG65/CA65: Other than the CA65 being waterproof, these are identical right?[/*]
  • How would video from this camera compare to video from a mini-dv camera?[/*]
  • How would it appear on a 42 inch plasma?[/*]
  • How would this 640x480 video differ from the 640x480 video of my Sony H5 whichI've found to be very noisy in low light.[/*]
  • Would this H.264 format be easy to transfer to a dvd and do dvd players generally recognize this format? If they don't recognize this format, does that mean that I should be considering the CG6 instead?
[/*]

  • HD2: I like the fact that this can film in widescreen mode. I've read reviews that said the low light ability of the HD2 isn't great. I'd be doing a lot of filming indoors and its not that bright....... would the HD2 be able to cope? How would it fare in comparison to the CG6/CG65/CA65?[/*]
  • How about camera shake? Is that an issue compared to the CG6/CG65/CA65?
[/*]
Thanks in advancefor taking the time to read through my questions.
