I'm looking to grab an hard drive camcorder in the next month. What do you guys recommend? I'd like to stay under $500, and so far am considering the Sony SR42.
I think the OP wanted to know about HDD camcorders, not HD ones.It costs more than $500, but I love my Canon HV20. 3 Megapixel chip, shoots in HD. 10x optical zoom. 24p Cinema Mode. Shoots still pics with ok quality.
I'd love an HV20, but it's a bit out of my price range. Canon chooses not to make hard drive cams for some reason, and the next best company to make anything is Sony, and their hard drive cams have gotten bad reviews.Ah, correct, my mistake. Sorry.
(But buy an HV20 anyway )
