Hi, I'm new to this forum and a complete novice so wud really appreciate some advice.
Want to buy my 70 yr old Dad a camcorder for Christmas to make home videos of grandkids & family events. looking at a low budget of £200 max
He uses a digital SLR stills camera but he's pretty clueless about how it links with the PC (he connects his camera to the TV but that's about his limit!!) I dont want a storage media where he'd have to download to a PC each time like with an internal harddrive.
I'm looking for a model with good quality sound and picture that's EASY to use indoor & out. Something that wud keep a proud granddad happy for hours. Ive looked at some DVD camcorders. like the idea of recording straight onto a DVD format with material ready to view and easy to store.
Any thoughts on the Sony DVD 115 (£145 in Argos) read lots of good reviews but some have mentioned controls/menus were difficult to master? Also what about the touch screen, heard they can be a hyper sensitive on some models and bit of a pain?
Any suggestions or advice really appreciated,
