This is a fairly standard price and you can get the HV20 for a little bit less.
#2
Standard price where exactly?

If you're going to say that and vote cold, at least have the decency to point out where else it's a standard price.

This is a brand new model, uses SDHC cards, not last year's HDV model (admittedly still a great HD camcorder), so why compare the price to the HV20?

Same price at Play.com so as already said standard price.

The first 9 show the price at under £590 which is why I suggested that it’s a standard price. This was in response to your listing which suggested that it’s a misprice.

Why not! Just because it’s newer doesn’t mean it’s going to be better or suit everyone’s’ requirements.
Some people prefer HDV (HV20) because it doesn’t require such a powerful PC as the AVHCD (HF100) format does when editing. Or maybe they have editing software that supports HDV and not AVHCD and would rather not spend extra money on upgrading. If you need to upgrade your PC and software to get the same experience from editing AVHCD as HDV then that’s a strong reason against it as far as I’m concerned.

The HV20 has a microphone input and analogue video input and there are other differences between the two. Isn’t it normal to compare products when trying to see if a particular product is a bargain?

Not really. I think if something is posted on HUKD we should vote on whether that particular product can be found cheaper elsewhere. By all means state your opinions on the product and similar products in the thread but dont vote it cold because of a similar item seen for less, it has to be based on whether you can buy the exact same product cheaper elsewhere. If you cant buy that exact same model cheaper elsewhere then its a HOT price for that product.

Thats my view anyway.

I’m happy to vote something cold even though it’s the cheapest available for that item if I’m convinced that it’s a very poor item at that price point. A poor item at a low price is not a good deal as far as I’m concerned if I can get a better product at the same price. Deals don’t exist in a vacuum.

This is speaking in general and not in reference to this decent camcorder. I voted this cold because it’s a pre-release item, the price isn’t exceptional and the title needs to be edited to remove the reference to a misprice which has been shown to be erroneous and gives this deal more attention than it deserves.

For some reason, there seems confusion among retailers about the RRP of this camcorder, varies between £599-£799. Not sure why or which one is correct, but probably explains why some retailers are listing it for more than others.

The £569 price tag is probably from those going with a £599 RRP. Which does make more sense, otherwise it would be more expensive than the hard-disk based HG10. While the HG10 might not be as new, it is still part of the current Canon line up and comes with expensive built-in storage.
