Who out here has made the switch? Did you stick with Mini-DV/HDV? Is the Canon XH A1 a good buy? What is a good place to read current reviews. Most of my internet searches come up with '06,'07 info. I like dpreview for my photography reviews, but can not find an equivalent with video.
I shoot mostly wake, snow, mountainbike, and kid stuff around the house, 90% for personal use. One thing I liked about having my GL2, was that I would sometimes be invited to help cover certain sporting events and get my stuff included in broadcasts. To me, that was worth having a "prosumer" camera.
