Hi, everyone. This is my first visit here and I came on to try and get some info and advice on a suitable HD starter pro or semi pro camcorder. It would be used mainly for outdoor nature and wildlife shoots and some indoor stuff so I suppose picture quality and a good optical zoom (X15-20) will count more than sound quality. Unfortunately this is part of my bucket list so obviously I don't want to pay the earth. I've looked on Ebay and specialist sites but the prices are... well. One camcorder that seems to crop up a lot is the Panasonic HDC-MDH1 Pro PAL camcorder. Pricewise it's within my budget, new ones varying between £750 and £950. Is this product any good, specifically for wildlife shots, or does the price reflect it's performance? I would welcome any suggestions or pointers. I don't mind buying a used camera. Reading through the site there seems to be lots of helpful people here and I hope someone can help. Thank you for reading this.
