Can I get some advise on a camcorder? I was considering the Sony as I've had Sony digital cameras and like them. Browsing through the cameras on Amazon I find there are about 3 different types. The ratings all mention that the video from the DVD carmeras is nearly impossible to edit, and if you edit you lose a lot of quality. But then reading the reviews from the other types, there are people who can't seem to edit the video from them either. Is this just a question of having the right editing software, or is it a hardware thing? I do a lot of travelling and think that I'd probably want to edit a lot. I'd be looking for a camera that would be under $1000 and have a 20X zoom. Is there some that compare to the Sony? I was most interested in the Sony DCR-SR100 3MP 30GB with my research so far, but it only has a 10X zoom. Being that I have a good digital camera, the camera function isn't all that important. Is there some without the feature, and can you get a better price if you don't get the picture function? Sure appreciate any help you can give me.
