Hi, hope you can help! I am looking for a camcorder for family events, will need to do basic editing and widescreen recording appeals to me. After weeks of research I have come to a bit of a dead-end. I like the Idea of a Hard-Drive I cant help but compare DV with my VHS recorder (I would not replace it with another tape-machine, it would be DVD or Hard Drive) but how good is the quality of Hard Drive compared to DV? I like the Sony SR50 (£400, unable to find any reviews!, is 10 x zoom adequate?) but would I be better spending say half of that on a Canon MV940 (£200, seem to get a lot for the cash) until the Hard Drive gets better/cheaper in 2/3 years? Would I notice any difference between the two when playing the results back on my TV ? Any ideas/views would be much appreciated.
