Buying HD camera - begginer need help

by George_g300 / March 19, 2013 6:27 AM PDT

Hi guys, i would like to buy an HD camcorder but i don't know many things about cameras so i'd like your help. I don't need extreme specifications i just need a camcorder that has good Full HD video and to record fine at low light places, cause i want to use the camcorder inside my home for some youtube clips.
I'd like your opionion for the following camcorders and which one you recommend me to buy
Sony HDR-CX190EB
Panasonic HC-V100 EG HD
Samsung Digital Videocamera HMX-QF20

Also,i saw the clips from a friend's camcorder the sony hdr-cx130 and i was very satisfied. Is the hdr cx190 the newer model of the specific series?and does this mean that the quality will be at least the same as the quality of the videos i saw from the cx130?

Choice of camera

I have the Panasonic HC-V700 so I would (obviously) recommend this one. The V*00 range of Panasonics have been recently replaced by the V*20 (in my case the V720) so a V700 can be picked up at a good price from Amazon etc.
