Budget: No more than $1000
Detail: Want as future-proof as possible , HQ HD camcorder for home video, and some semi-serious video shoots.
Additional: Need advice on extra memory, carrying bag, tripod etc etc I am listening!
I'm visiting the US at Christmas and hope to buy a decent HD camcorder. I'm hoping to get a better deal in the US than in Ireland or UK - is that still the case?
The model that I am interested in the Canon HFS10 is http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&fcategoryid=177&modelid=17993 because of its obvious quality performance.
Here are my questions:
1. Is the Canon HF S 10 worth the money?
2. If not, is there anything else like it that is?
3. I'm hoping to make a purchase on boxing day, during the sales. Where and maybe when(what time) should I start looking? ANy ideas on what discount is offered around this time of the year?
4. Will as US electrical equipment work OK if I use an adapter like this: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Stepdown-240-120V-Transformer-45VA/dp/B000NJ26X2/ref=pd_bxgy_ce_img_b
Any other advice?
