I wonder if any experienced cam user can help me chosing a camcorder until £900. I have been looking arround and I know I can buy a good camacorder whithin this budget. Probably with lots of functionality I will not use immediatly on family/friends/vacations movies. Anyway, why buying a cheaper one and than realize it's limitations after 1 year. I want a very good image quality, optical zoom, 16x9 recording capability. I 'll use it for fun, with family, friends and group activities (in door and out door) and I pretend to build up my own movies on dvd with the appropriate software. I also don't need to capture other non-DV formats. By arround £900 I can buy the new cannon MVX3i, but I have not seen any review available yet on the net. Are there similar models from cannon or any other brand that I should pay attention to? Thanks in advance for any possible help.
