I am looking to blow some cash on a digital camcorder, miniDV format. I am looking to spend at most 1000 dollars. I am not a professional by any means, I just want a good quality camcorder to record memories. I also am going to be an assistant track coach, so I might use to record people long jumping or whatnot so I can look at their form. In any case, I am considering a Sony or Canon, but I don't really know whats good. I'm just wondering if anyone has suggestions on a good model or a brand. Right now I'm looking at the DCR--TRV25 or DCR-TRV27 by Sony or Elura 40MC or ZR50MC by Canon. Thanks!
