Can anybody reccomend a camcorder?

Hi peeps

Mine is a case of 'the more i research the more confused i become'.

I'm thinking of buying a camcorder with a budget of £500. It's must be HD. have optical stabiliser, 10 X optical zoom (or more), high MP for still photos, have HDD and memory cards. compact size preferred.

After many many days i'm looking at this one
click here from Electro center

But i feel my decision is bourne of frustration! What do you think of this and the shop 'Electro Centre'? Is there something better out there within my requirements?

Many thanks

Hi peeps
1st of all I'm no expert on this subject but two years ago, when deciding on a digital stills camera, one of the sites I checked out was click here.
I'm sure you will have done plenty of searches under "review", so that you have some idea as to how owners feel about the product. I would also do a review on the Electro centre, to determine if they're a reliable business.

Before I bought my Sony HD camcorder I did my research using these two sites click here# and click here. You will find an abundance of help and opinion on the latter.

It looks good but way to expensive. just got this one and the zoom is way better than that.

PFMarconi thanks for your link but unfortunately they seem to be focused on cameras only. Still your link will be useful later this year when i buy a camera.

Every body else thanks for your advice and links.

As i'm still undecided i have posted a similar thread on another forum. This is in no way to disrespect PCA or the valued forum members on here. As a result i will close this thread and hope you will not be offended by my actions.

Many thanks to you all.
