I am about to purchase my very first camcorder in the next couple of days. I was (and still am) very much set on the Sony DCR-IP220, it's looks,weight, specs and reviews I have read so far alll seem promising, although a few people have said it's awfull in low light. Before I part with the the best part of £1300 can anyone let me know if they think I'm making a good or bad choice. I had thought about the TRV-50, but it seems rather bulky, and I like the MV format - I am also set on all things SONY. I'm not going to use it for anything flashy, just the normal family & holiday thing for the time being, but who knows in the future. Thanks!
