Hi. I am in NZ on holiday and was considering giving my HV20 to my mum but with tape and FW capture it's too much hassle for her.
From personal experience, can you make a suggestion for an under $300 camcorder?
Battery life, IQ and audio quality, and HD are the main considerations.
This stems from me having tediously captured and converted her old VHS tapes for her and her seeing the importance of recording family life; twenty years down the track.
