I'm looking at buying my first camcorder. The choice I'm looking at is between Canon's MV450i anf MVX1i. It will be for general home use. Putting the two cams' specs together it seems they are very similar apart from MVX1i's still image capture, internal flash and optical stabilasation. I have a digital camera, therefore do not need the still image capture. Is optiacl stabilisation a huge benefit (worth the extra cash), over digital, or for a first time user is the MV450i OK. I don't want to over-spend if the benefits are not huge to my needs. Your assistance is much appreciated.
