Thread: guidance with camera purchase needed!

    Default guidance with camera purchase needed!

    Hello everyone,
    Basically im looking to buy a new camcorder, in the range of 300-500..
    There seems so many to choose from and with spare time nearly none existant i was hoping i could draw on your collective expertise..
    Essentially im looking for something with as much manual control as possible, i realise this list may be pie in the sky but here goes..
    not bothered at all with Sound or Stills capability but what'd be nice..
    manual focus
    manual exposure
    optical zoom
    interchangeable lens (i realise very unlikely in price range)
    low lux
    would like HD, but would also like SD capability..
    genuinely not so concerned with format
    I would gladly forsake image quality with manual control...
    Looking at them, Canons and Sonys look the nicest, but just not sure, a sony would be nice as im familiar with their hardware at work.. any advice or guidance would be very much appreciated!
    Thanks again, Rob
