I'm going on a round the world trip for 9 months and I need something decent to document my travel. I am considering purchasing this..
Panasonic HDC-HS9EB-S Full HD Camcorder with 60GB Hard: Amazon.co.uk: Electronics & Photo
My budget is around £500. I selected this for the reason it's full HD and that it has a 60gb hard drive. I'll be travelling with a small laptop and a 1 terabyte portable External Hard Drive. The hard drive is for transerring the raw footage over just to keep the 60b internal camera one empty. All the editting will be done upon my return on a much more powerful PC.
I was just wondering if this is realy the best way for me to go about this? I mean I won't be able to simply upload footage across, I am gone for a long time.
Is this really a good camera or can I find something better? Also should I take a camera stand with me?
Any help/recommends would be greatly appreciated because I know virtually nothing about Camcorders.
