i know all about avchd, we have a professional videographer / editor / photographer in the family (not me!).
minidv is cheap and will be around for quite a while more. SD camcorders are not yet set to take over the consumer market.
I agree in 2-3 years AVCHD will be kicking butt, but there is little point in going to that right now.
hdd camcorders eat _way_ too much juice, but they trade it for space.
it still surprises me that mini dvd/cd recorders are still on the market as they are just horrid.
SD material is going to be king for a loooong time.
