I am trying to decide between these two camcorders which are both currently available in the UK for around £650. But getting conflicting advice. Some say Canon are more reliable and that the larger optical zoom is better. Others say the Sony has the clearer picture. I am not interested in the stills capability and wanted just to buy a good camcorder with a DV in facility, but the models being how they are have lead me to these to. What Camcorder gave both a good write-up, but this weeks Which magazine prasied the Sony and slated the Canon. Any users out there with experiences ?
