Hi John,

Below is an extract from our 'Video Terminology' page, which answers your question;

MiniDV: This is the small tape used to record digital video (DV). MiniDV tape currently offers the best video picture quality and can be used to record standard definition video (SD) and high definition (HD).

The high definition video recorded to MiniDV tape is known as HDV.

AVCHD: AVCHD, which stands for Advanced Video Codec High Definition, is replacing MPEG2 as the new video recording system being used in the latest tapeless camcorders, and can record standard definition and high definition.

AVCHD uses a MPEG4 CODEC, also known as H.264 (I know. This video terminology confuses me sometimes as well!).

Hope that helps?
