Re: Digital Camcorder - Recommendations?
Not sure about camcorders, but I bought a Panasonic Lumix TZ7 recently.
This is a 10Megapixel, 12x optical zoom camera. Apaarently takes the best photos in it's class, before moving up to SLRs. It takes HD video as well (up to 15min clips, as many clips as your memory card can handle).
Might be worth considering?
