Looking to buy a camcorder.

Got £200 (~$350US)

It's not a massive amount of money I know so I'm not expecting to see that much difference between different brands.

I want it for general family videos. Indoor parties, outside.

From the research I have done, SD card storage seems better than HDDs. Correct?

TBH, I don't understand most of what I've read about the camera's. Certainly not enough to understand a lot of the differences in the jargon.

Most of my shots will be in pretty well lit situations so don't need great performance for night time use.

A good mic is important.

Small size to encourage me to use it / carry it around is important.

I'm more than happy to have last years technology if there's a bargain to be had and there hasn't been a big leap forwards between 2010/2011/2012 models.

Can't imagine videos will be uploaded anywhere. Looking for family memories / keepsakes.


Thoughts?

Thanks all


Mike
