Hi all

I am currently in the market for a Camcorder. Due to my lack of knowledge in this area, I asked advice from a friend who recommended the Sony HVR-Z1E. He has had this camera for almost a year and is very happy with it. Due to the project involved, it may be necessary to purchase 2/3 cameras.

Can anyone advise as to their experiences with this camera, and indeed if they can recommend a better Sony one?

Finally, I would love to be able to build my knowledge up on the types of cameras and what the various terminology means. Could any one advise as to how best to do this?

Many thanks.
