Camcorder for a Contractor

by binasr / December 2, 2007 6:26 PM PST

Hi All,
Your advice and expertise for this purchase would be greatly appreciated! We have a small remodeling business and need a camcorder for certain site visits.

USAGE: I expect to use this item once every 1-2 months. All the camera work will be inside homes, some with VERY bad lighting and we'll be moving almost constantly as the homeowner will be walking us through the home and talking about their projects.

NEEDED: We need a long battery life (90+ minutes recording time), inexpensive consumables, easy to use operation, good stability w/movement, GREAT audio, and good picture in low light. Also, if you know of an old model that you think meets these requirements, we'll buy used. I don't care if it's heavy, as we'll hardly be using it.

USER: We're not technically savvy, and like point-and-shoot type electronics. We have Dell PC's w/XP, if that matters.
