My feeling is that they are not very good.
If you've read that the video quality is not very good, why spend $1000 on one??
What are your feelings on the hard drive camcorders? Do you own one? what are the pros and cons? I would like to purchase one for around $1,000 U.S. What would be a good camera for that price? I was almost set on buying the Jvc Everio series but read the video quality is not very good. Can anyone recommend a good hard drive camcorder?
