    Trying to choose my first digital camcorder. So far based on trying to balance cheap with alot of features:

    NV-DS65B

    Samsung VPD33
    http://www.prcdirect.co.uk/PRC/PRC.storefront/EN/product/VPD33
    I am going to mainly use it to film my daughter as shes only 3 and growing up quickly, plus I would like to do some editing on my pc aswell.

    From searching these forums the Panasonic has had some good reviews. Not found anything about the Samsung as I suppose its quite new but the specs seem damn good for the money

    The things I cannot find though is on the Samsung - no info on connecting it upto a vcr to transfer on vhs tapes.

    Can anyone give me some advice please on what I should look at and why?

    or is there better options for the money??

    IMO the panasonic is the better choice, I dont know alot about camcorders yet but I have just purchased the Panasonic NV-DS65 and have to say its a fantastic camcorder.

    The main thing to note between the 2 camcorders your looking at is the panasonic has dv IN and OUT. Which from what I understand is usually only avaliable on more expensive models!

    Also one more point to push towards the panasonic is the price I got mine for......£309 inc VAT !!!! from here:

    Now that will take way too long - need it by the weekend. I really doubt they can have it at that price for too long - its like £50 cheaper than anywhere else.

    So - whats issues with the Samsung VPD33. It sounds like it have excellent specs for the money - just cannot find any reviews anywhere.

    Dear Sir/Madam

    Unfortunately we wont be having any more NV DS65 camcorders until the end of November, at which time the Special price £279.99 will no longer be
    applicable.
