Camcorder Ignorant

OK guys and gals. I want a camcorder. Here's what I'm looking for. $350 or less that can be picked up in a store. I don't want to search the net for the best deal. I want it by this weekend. It needs to be versatile. I would like to use it for some of the group rides. But it also needs to be something I can use for my camping trips.

Something else that is important to me, is one that is good in LOW LIGHT without having to use a light on the camera.

Any suggestions, please hit me with it. I wanna buy by this Thursday evening

Get whatever you want but stay away from DVD and hard drive based camcorders.

Why do you say that? Are you talking about only when using on a bike? Or just all around?

DVD based camcorder will skip like and hardrive based will die within the first minute going thru bumps. Try getting one with AV-in connection and a bullet cam so you can mount it any angle you want, yet the camcorder can be hidden to protect from damage in case you crash.

That's great to know! I was getting at myself reading this thread, because I own JVC Everio (Hard Disk). But I still have my Sony Handycam

It's alot bigger than the JVC though :/:

au contraire! I'm gonna have to at least try it.



But who knows, you may be right. Once I get into converting it through my DVD Recorder, then editing it, and all else that may be involved, I'll probably say fuggit... too much time... too much trouble.

I have a JVC everio HD too.. you can set it to record straight to SD (their new uber model is all SD). Never had any problems with it shutting off. If you drop it or vibrate it too hard, it will shut itself off because its protecting the harddrive, but never had problems in cars. Haven't used it on the bike yet though... no mount.
