Thanks for the reply RAM.
Yes, I guess it is for general use. I have a camera with me whenever I am with my daughters and/or grandchildren. So it is mostly for family use. Occasionally someone asks me to do an informal shoot or their wedding or anniversary party, but not often.
I want to shoot really good video of my kids and their kids and be able to assure the best duplication to tape — generally I copy to VHS because I don’t have the hware to dupe to DVD. Someday I hope I will have a DVD recorder.
Maybe I want too much out of a moderately priced camcorder: very high quality image, smooth zoom, portability (even some of the pro cams are pretty small I think).
I hope I answered the question. Thanks again for your input.
