Modern LCD HDTVs come with high resolition 1080p capability. It therefore may make sense to look for camera that can record in 1080p resolution, to take advantage of the HD capability of the modern TV. With this camera this is not possible. However, if you are looking for a portable, small camcorder, that is good in optics, you may still like to opt for Sony DCR-SX45.
