A camcorder for under $1,000.

by nfehrenbacher / April 2, 2006 5:14 AM PDT

I would like to get a camcorder for around $1,000 U.S.. I will mostly use it for family movies, inside and outside use. Can anyone recommend a good camcorder for my price range?

If you want to edit them on your computer, Then I would suggest a Mini DV camera, such as the Sony DCR-HC46 or HC96, DVD camcorders are nice also, but you only get 20 minuites of record time per DVD as opposed to an hour on Mini DV.

After months of research, I decided on the Panasonic PVGS 300 (3ccd) camcorder) and wow what video! It's much easier to use what with it's joystick rather than banging on touch screens of other cameras. The video is awesome. I got it at Circuit City for $650 and after a month, I have no regrets. Great low light video and Outstanding video in good light. Trust me you can't go wrong with this camcorder by Panasonic.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
