As you can tell from the subject header I'm going to Thailand in 10 days and desperately need one to take with me. I'll be doing a tour all over Thailand so will include lots of jungle trecks, seeing beautiful waterfalls as well as staying on sunny islands. So will need a good zoom also.
I'm looking to spend £300 but could move up to £350 at a push if it was worth it! I don't have any idea on what cam would best suit me for my needs though and was hoping that some of you would be kind enough to give me some cam recommendations. I'm aware of the other threads on the site, and have looked at them but still need that personal advice please as I respect what a lot of you have to say on this forum
I noticed a few popular choices on here; Panasonic: Gs 250, Sony HC44 or HC46, and Canon MVX460, but then after reading through this months Which Camcorder (I think it's called) they highly rate the following:
Am I right in thinking that a 3CCD cam is also better for me? And are the models mentioned above only 1? I noticed that someone had recommended the Panasonic NVGS180B and Panasonic NV-GS75EB as being a good 3CCD cam. Although there doesn't seem to be much info on the Panasonic NV-GS75EB. Are there others that may be better than these?
Ideally I would like a cam that isn't too big and bulky and something like an anti shake feature would also be of use to me. Lol, a nice 2.7 LCD would be good too, although I wouldn't be too bothered about that!
Hope you guys can help me out as I really am pulling my hair out at the moment!
Many thanks in advance.
