I am deciding between a JVC GRDVL160 and Panasonic NVDS29B as a basic entry digital cam for family/holiday stuff. Probably edging more towards the JVC because of their colour nightscope facility. Am I in dreamland - are these features worth bothering about for filming at night in low/no light? Also, probably going to buy from www.empire. Not only are they amongst the cheapest but they also have a store near where I live. Any experiences? Finally, should I spend an additional £100 or so, on a 3 year extended warranty?
