    Hello, I wondered whether any of you kind people can help me. I'm trekking in the Himalayas in a few months and i want to take a camcorder with me. I've never owned one before and I was after some tips on what I should be looking for. The key problem is likely to be that I might struggle to get power so battery life may be critical to me. Do the battery's degrade fast even when not in use? If I took a fully charged spare would it be worth it if i had no mains power for a week?
    Bulk is another thing as I have to carry things up a mountain. I suppose tapes aren't too bad though. What format should I ideally go for?

    All help greatly received. I'm budgeting around £600-£700.
    Thanks

    :lease:
