HD (really HDV) camcorder price report for Real Estate professionals.

Services for Real Estate Pros with ABCvideoTours.com

Ok before we get to pricing, I own two Sony HDR HC-7 (current market price $999.95) and one JVC VS200 (long discontinued).

The prices on the low end are:

Panasonic HDC-DX1 $519 

Canon HV10 $649

Sony HDR-UX5 $669 

Most of the models are priced in the $800 to $1,000 range.

Sony HDR-HC5 $749 

Sony HDR-UX5 $849 

Panasonic HDC-SD5 $999 (this model is HD - 1920 x 1080 pixel size frame)

The prices on the high end are:

JVC GZ-HD7 $1,199 

Panasonic AG-HSC1U $1,895

Above the $2,000 mark is the "prosumer" models.

So the average HDV camcorder will be about $1,000.

Also before purchasing do some research between the difference of AVCHD and HDV formats.

IMHO: I would NOT buy a camcorder that records to DVD.

Good Luck.
