Help with HD camcorder---trying to get Blu-Ray quality

by gray9965 / November 22, 2009 8:07 AM PST

We are looking to upgrade our home video camera and have found that we have fallen behind in our knowledge of video camera technology and terminology! We have a PS3 for our blu-ray player and are looking to record our home videos in blu-ray HD quality. Ideally, I would also like to be able to edit the videos and make a menu and such on my computer, but with minimal video loss. Is it possibe to do this with any midrange priced camera (500ish bucks) or am I expecting too much? We are trying our best to find a camera to duplicate true HD, like that found on Discovery HD theater. We saw the Vixia HF200 in Costco, but not sure if that is what we are looking for. Do we need to get a blu-ray video recorder? Help! Thanks!
