It has been said many, many times, but for some apparent reason people come here and without even trying to search the countless archives, even the most recent 10 or 20 posts regarding this subject, and ask again. I understand it is easier just to post and hope that enough people here will be kind and patient enough to respond, and respond, again and again.
Please, PLEASE take advantage of the MANY threads here regarding similar questions/posts, do some research – there are a gadzillion resources on the web to visit and read – and visit your local or area electronics stores.
A good/GREAT standard definition camcorder using MiniDV tape and with 3-chips, GREAT manual control, decent soiund and fantastic lens, as well as optical stabilization that is world renown is the Canon GL2.
