Thread: HELP. SONY DCR-SX40, DCR-SR47, CANON FS200, SAMSUNG K40, or SANYO XACTI VPC-TH1?

    Question HELP. SONY DCR-SX40, DCR-SR47, CANON FS200, SAMSUNG K40, or SANYO XACTI VPC-TH1?

    After days of Browsing reviews and all.. I narrowed down my list (considered appearance, price, and youtube samples.) to

    SONY DCR-SX40
    SONY DCR-SR47
    CANON FS200
    SAMSUNG K40
    SANYO XACTI VPC-TH1


    Yes, they are all budget friendly (below 300$ i guess)
    I will be needing a camcorder for editing videos.
    I want a handy camcorder, and also easy to balance (too light cause shakes for me. when not using a tripod)
    I am not really into zoom capabilities, but why not?
    I want a auto/manual focus.
    Crisp and vibrant colors.. (SD considerations)
    Acceptable noise in Low light.

    All camcorders in the list are SD except for the sanyo.
    I really like the color of the sanyo but i don't really trust it. I don't know why.. Enlighten me please!

    SANYO XACTI VPC-TH1 VS SONY SR47


    I considered some sample clips posted on youtube.

    CANON FS200 (smooth color)

    SANYO (really nice color; contrast; i like the color)

    SAMSUNG k45 (can't find a K40, minor difference i think. very relaxing color)

    SONY SX-40 (amazed...)

    SONY SR47 (doesn't give justice, i think)


    Please help me in choosing my first ever camcorder.
    If you own one of those cameras please, share your experience with it.
    Replies will be appreciated.
