I'm looking to update from the above camera. Nothing wrong with it per se and I do like the fact that tape gives an archival copy but I'm also getting a little fed up with the slow response time from off, the extra bulk and the real time copying. Therefore I'd like to move to a flash based camera but I'm not sure which model. I like its image quality and would not want a backward step. I did look at the Canon HFS 21 but the price was little high for my liking and I feel that I'd likely be paying for features I don't use. The main and almost exclusive use is for videoing the kids hence the desire for faster startup. I really don't tend to do much other than straight up videoing - nothing creative with settings etc, more auto than anything. Needs: Flash based Good image quality, comparable to HDV30 Fast start up, likely much of a muchness with flash Wants: Built in storage would be nice. Would something like a Panasonic SD90 be suitable, say more than some of the cheaper Canons - I get the impression than Panasonic is pretty good for the more middle priced machines? Any suggestions for models greatly appreciated.
