about to buy Canon MVX460...good move (or not?)


Standard Member
Hi to everyone
just trying to get a bit of info. I have a Sony HC18 E at present and find it produces decent video - even in low(ish) light. It only has 10x optical zoom tho' and I'm looking for something a little more powerful.
i've trawled the internet for reviews etc and all the decent camcorders with a 2.7" lcd for true 16:9 shooting, and 20x plus optical zoom seem to be either 10x or 12x optical zoom.
I think the Canon MVX460 best suits my criteria, but have read that there is possibly a problem with motor noise and it may not be very good in low light. I am going to Florida soon and would like to shoot footage of fireworks. Any advice on my choice would be greatly appreciated.
