I'm thinking of looking into getting a DVD camcorder for my husband for Christmas. I'm completely mind boggled and don't even know where to begin looking or what to be looking for.
I want something that's going to be fun to use a LOT since we live so close to family and get together often. So it needs to be user friendly and relatively straight forward right out of the box or after minimum manual exploring (my husband isn't one for manuals ).
We don't have an HDTV or anything like that (or foresee getting one anytime soon), so does it matter whether we get an HD camcorder? Does it enhance the picture quality even without having an HDTV?
Price is something consider, but it's not an absolute deal breaker either. I'd really like to hear suggestions on products or recommendations from anyone who might have one and have the option to narrow it down later because of price.
Edit to add: For example, right out of the gate and not really knowing anything about what I should look for, I like the look/reviews/capabilities of this one. Thoughts, opinions?
