I am a first time camcorder buyer. My kids are getting older and I realized when my daughter learned how to ride her bike last weekend, I should have caught that on video. I don't want to miss any more milestones or special activites and games. My uncle bought last year's Panasonic PV-GS250 and swears it's the best. I see it's been replaced by the GS300. Was the GS250 really better? I see it has an editors choice that didn't carry over to the GS300. We're hoping to keep this purchase under $600, and I see I can pick up the GS250 on ebay, or would it be best to but the GS300 new? We like the panasonic brand along with the CCD, but any other suggestions are welcomed!
