I hope this has been posted in the correct place.

I know almost nothing about camcorders but am about to embark on a project which aims to record various parks, listed buildings (inside and out), civic buildings, open spaces and beauty spots within a small town in Lancashire. The video needs to be shot in HD. Wide angle might be useful.

I'm looking for advice on such things as make and model (800 ish budget), recording medium, tripod etc. etc. I appreciate that this is a very broad ask so I'd even appreciate links to other threads on here if you can't be more specific.

In fact, any help would be most welcome!
