Im looking to buy a new handicam.

I need to know what are the new features and specs i should look for.

I am looking for a top of the range sort of handicam.

It will need for sure a built in hard drive, no idea what the real term for it is. - How big can they go?

any ideas ???

does this mean that if it had a hard drive it will be a HD camera aswell?

The link you gave, is that camera a top of the range quality??

No,a built in HDD (Hard Disc Drive) is just where the recorded content will be stored,rather than a tape, memory card ect,a HD (High-Definition )camcorder offers the best quality recording to date.Paddy

GEEKSTA,i don't know but it looks to be pretty good,Any one got this camera? Paddy

gosh! I just found a price for that camera, its £890.

Ok thanks for the info so far.. :)
If i get a High Def handicam; with hard drive, will i still be able to play my home movies as normal on my pc?? just like a normal dvd movie?
or will i need a HD PC or something drastic??
