I want to upgrade my Sony DCR-SR32 which is forty GB to a better model. I am looking for a handy cam which has optical zoom. I am not fussed about HD, am either looking at the Panasonic or JVC. I live in the UK so recommendations should be in the UK. I have seen the JVC GZ-MG750BEK Everio HDD on Amazon, but I don't know how good it is, or if it can do M-Peg 2 or if it comes supplied with a USB cable as it doesn't say.
I went into Comet and the assistant said all they do is SD card based camcorders, so I would have to buy a very expensive SD card to use it, which would probably fail short of what I want to film. I go to Cornwall a lot and I'm always using it there. Please can you advise me please?
Many thanks for your help
