You might define what you will be taking - - - indoor/outdoors... children/pets/scenes, etc. there is no single-purpose "good" camera - only compromises.
Also, will you be editing the movies, or just watching them on a TV?

Many folks want to Edit, to gain greater artistic control, then there is the Audio side . . .. and you'll need quite a powerful computer, like quad-core . . . . .

Don't expect the cheaper camcorders to be much good in low-light (like indoors), that's the downside IMHO.

....just a general all purpose eg. kids birthday parties .
...shes not too worried about editing.
