Help pls....how noticeable is difference in HD quality?

going to buy a HD camcorder. thinking of buying a small one that takes SD cards.....as a good format to store stuff on and i like the neatness of a small camera....

saw a good deal on a toshiba one for £119 at the outlet centre....however its max HD is like 760... will i notice a big difference between 1080 and 760 quality.....beacuse the prices jump if u go for crystal clear.... but how unclear is almost crystal clear?!

thanks for reading and any help will be appreciated x

The HD cams on the market now are FULL HD. Makes a massive difference in quality on screen.

The one you mention wont be full HD - especially at that price.

cue the Hd debate... betamax was better :w00t:

I wouldn't get hung up on resolution simply because there are other signficant factors to consider, there's little point in having a 1920x1080 sensor if it's coupled with a poor quality lens and sensor. I'd take a good quality 720p HD camcorder over a poor quality 1080p camcorder, rather than base your choice on the specs alone read some reviews and look up samples to see what you think.

Haha..... boom boom.

Yeh, I know what you mean and agree with Johns comments above. Though the quality of the Full HD cams Ive seen recently are pretty impressive.

Of course another consideration not mentioned, is the compression being used.

best advice to test one in a store and see what YOU think, if you're happy with it, coolio

I'm far from clued up on HD camcorders, but HD is going to be recorded at a pretty big filesize, and an SD card will soon get full. Probably best to go for something that can handle a bit more storage capacity
