Hi everyone

been looking through the forum past few days looking at the review of most camera's.

I would love a HD camera but the Mrs doesnt want to spend more than £300 and from what ive heard HD camera's under £300 aint worth it.

So im looking for a SD camera and have come across the following

Panasonic SDR-S26 - £289
Sony DCR-SX50 - £299
Canon Legria FS200 - £229

(prices from a local place)

which one would you go for and why? Not bothered if its HDD or SD cards either is fine.

All are a bit new in thre market but going by thier predecessors performances, you should be getting good to quite good perfrnmance out of them

You could go for a refurbed Canon HV30 directly from Canon:
eBay My World - canon_uk1

I've bought from them before and never had any problems, although some will nay say their customer service. But as I said, I've never had any issues with them!
