Well, I don't spend a whole lot of time delving into the sub-$1,000 camera category. And it is slightly an odd situation when your adapter can cost more than your camera itself.
But the fact of the matter is that the Canon HV30 is making a bit of a name for itself as a reasonably useful camera.
So, I thought I would at least show a little bit of what people are getting done with this affordable little puppy.
