    Any advice on HD Camcorders?

    I am shopping for a family Cam,
    and I have seen them ranging from $499 to $1600

    What about the BluRay Camcorders?

    Your advice is appreciated,

    Thanks,

    Hitachi makes a blue ray one,
    It was the NewEgg Shocker today for $499
    It recorded on both BluRay and DVD, in HD

    Anyone know if the Hard Drive ones can take a drop?
    or are they toast after just one small drop?

    I am looking to spend $400-$1000
    I just don't want to get the wrong format,

    looking to get the best bang for my $,
    the idea of HD appeals to me,
    Don't want some older thing that is obsolete in a year,

    Anyone have a new camcorder they are happy with?

    who wants to use tapes? plus i think that it only does 1080i instead of 1080p.

    Why do all you guys like the flash memory ones and not the hard drive camcorders?


    Seems like it would suck having to buy the memory cards and keep up with them,

    Why not one that records to a Hard drive or DVD?

    I suspect because HDD is more prone to failure due to moving parts as opposed to memories.
