My son showed me his new Canon camcorder last week. I expressed surprise it was mini DV, I thought the latest models had HDD storage.

He said HDD camcorders did not have high enough definition to match the new HDTV he was getting.

He's usually sharp on such matters,... I can't comment.

Looking at the pixel spec there is a vast difference between them.

When shooting in 16:9 ratio, the lowest model has only about one third of the best.

I have not read any reviews of these models, but in principle the DCR-SR290E should give significantly superior pictures.
