Since I now own a Canon HV30 I went looking for a place where other owners gather. I found a great spot on the net, its a HV30 user group on Vimeo. You can check it out here.
There are several members who have uploaded tons of video showcasing the HV30, 20 and even 40. It appears to be a good place for HV30 users. With 600 members and 66 videos as of this date, you will find tons of information plus videos to see the quality of this camera.
The forum is not full as it appears they haven't been online for long. But info is there. many of the videos are very good, you can see a sample below.
So I thought I'd share this if you have a HV30 or plan to get one.
