I'm thinking about getting a Fast DV.nowAV but I'm not sure whether it comes with the full version of Premiere or the LE version.
Also is it any better or worse than the DV500 considering theres a good £100 at least in the price differance and I'm not bothered about the lack of "Real Time" effects.

The Dv.now AV does come with a FULL version of Premiere.

You pose an interesting question. IMO the real time in DV500 is really only REALTIME Preview, and most of the realtime work is not what I would really be intersted in. I think of realtime as realtime color correction the things that are important to be able to view immediately.
So I think the DV.now AV makes for a very attractive offering. Personally I really like the Fast forward front end that allows for capture control, and then when you want allows for the automatic launch of Premiere with the clips placed on the timeline for you to continue your project.

It would be my choice

I have been in favour of buying the DV500 over the DV.nowAV mainly because of the software bundle, but looking closer the only thing I think that would really be usefull is TitleDeko.I'm not into flashy 3D transitions and i already have music creation software but i do like catchy titles!Is TitleDeko really worth paying that extra bit of money for?(Comparing prices, the DV500 seems to be less than £50 more than theDV.nowAV!)
