They have some relatively good camcorders for around that price. ZR900, 930, 950. The Sony DCR-HC96 is also a good option.
Hi, my fiancee and I are looking to buy a camcorder to record very good video and audio quality of our son mostly and also for leisure recordings such as us playing Rock Band just to name one. We'd like the camcorder to be able to record well in the dark and being able to transfer our videos to our PC is a must! We're not experts with recording, so special features aren't as important as very good recording quality, but we'd definitely like to get the most "bang for our buck" I'd say the most we're willing to pay is $250. Any information will be greatly appreciated! Thank you!
