I’m new to video shooting and stuff. I want to buy an HD camcorder with the following features:
1. A frame rate setting option for 24fps (23.976)
2. Slow motion feature
3. Hard Disk Drive
4. Zoom of atleast 10-20x
5. Budget: $1100-1200
Can anyone suggest a video camera with all the features in this range?

Kamaljeet, if you haven’t already, be sure to check out the Camcorders Buyer’s Guide December issue, pay attention to author Marshall Rosenthal when he gets to the intermediate cameras where he mentions 24p. One of the cameras mentioned should fulfill what you are looking for. But to really get you shopping, try the .pdf at the end of the article, it’ll have the grid for camcorders. Another one that you won’t find in that article I know for a fact has slow motion and is fun to play with is the JVC GC-PX10.http://www.videomaker.com/article/15573/
Remember to budget for items that will really make video fun – of course this all depends on what you intend to do with your video, but,equipment such as a tripod, case/bag, lights, and mics/recorders should be heavily considered for anything other than home movies.
Here’s another great place to start,
