The HV20 when it was new in the US was around $1000, now the HV40 (newer model) can be had for about $700. So $600 - 700 would not be a great price for a used HV20 in the US, but in Belgium it might be. (I just checked Ebay and the HV20 is selling for around $400)

Another option is to check out hv20.com, it is an online forum of mostly Canon video camera users but does have some other brands too. There are a number of members from Europe on there and some one might have one for sale or be able to find one for you, or might be able to suggest an alternative model / brand that is more readily available in your country at a fair price.

I have the Canon HV20 and I'm very happy with it. The difference is night and day from the digital video I was using before this. crystal clear. Like I said before, I need to upgrade my computer and software, but I'm very happy with it.

FS22 isn't bad, but it's not HD. I recently purchased a Vixia HF20, which appears to be similar in specs with the FS22, but the Vixia/Legria HF20 is HD. I believe the Legria is a Euro model, and the Vixia is US model.

From the review I found it sounds like a decent camcorder (most user reviews are positive too). It has a higher resolution than the standard definition camcorder I had previously so the picture quality should be decent, even though it isn't HD. It also has manual shutter control which is good. Here is the review I found... http://www.infosyncworld.com/reviews/camcorders/canon-fs22/10303.html

How much $ did you find it for?
