I am looking to purchase an HD Camcorder for use on holiday.
I would like one that has good zoom, ideally one that adjusts to the light / darkness (not essential though), and one that stablises images as I have shakey hands.
I’m not really interested in Twin cameras, unless that is just an added-bonus.
I have a Sony Television, and would want to be able to play back any videos on the TV – ideally wirelessly, but I am also happy to connect an HDMI cable. I will only be cutting and cropping scenes within the Camcorder – I do not have a Laptop.
I have just been to Currys where they have the following – would you recommend any, or anything better online?:
Panasonic W580 – Â£210
Panasonic V380 – Â£249
Panasonic VX980 – Â£405. This one is out of budget and looks to be quite a large camera. Ideally I want the camera to fit inti a pocket or a small handbag.
I have also seen the Panasonic HC-V770 for Â£380. Whilst this is over our Â£300 budget, would it be worth stretching our budget to this camera?
