Hi, I'm a long time photographer, but quite a camcorder novice. It's time to buy one and I've been researching a bit but thought I could use some help. Couple questions: What websites do you use to research camcorders? What features would you consider important? My #1 use for the camcorder will be family stuff, but I'd like some creative/fun control as well. I've used Consumerreports.org (with a grain of salt), and found EasyCamcorders.com, but there doesn't seem to be a lot out there...or maybe I'm not searching correctly! The models I've been interested in so far range from US ~330 to 580. I think I'd like MiniDV, right? so I've limited myself to that. I was most interested in the JVC GR-DF550 (at least in part due to stop motion and intervalometer) and the 3ccd Panasonic PV-GS150. Any advice or suggestions you can offer would be greatly appreciated!
