I was considering purchasing this camera for making short films and also for holiday trips. Does anyone own it or can recommend it because it is quite a pricey camcorder, about £1000 most places. The pluses are are the 3 megapixel ccd and night framing in my mind but if there is another camera you could recommend I would appreciate it. it also has direct access to 'click to dvd' making transferring hopefully easy but I need to research this more I feel. Any opinions would be gratefull.
