It is just for holidays but we watch them a lot when we get back which is why we want High Def. Don't need anything special from the camera itself - prefer to have a decent optical zoom and a viewfinder and steady shot. We take a lot of video when we are away (5-8 hours usually over two weeks) and do enjoy watching when we're home so want great quality.
I've since found the HDR-XR500 and am now seriously considering that instead, so any views greatly appreciated.
