Not knowing much about camcorders, I thought I'd ask for recommendations here. I need to buy one as my normal camera has died, plus we wanted one anyway. My requirements are: 1) Must be HDD 2) Must be 1080 as we plan to get a HDTV next year. 3) Must be able to take still photos as I don't want to buy a separate camera. I've been looking at the Sony HDRXR200VE on Amazon for £686, though I'm slightly worried about the battery life having read a customer review. My maximum budget is £700, though cheaper would be better. Any ideas? Thanks in advance.
