I look at the Amazon Best sellers when I just don't know.
The Vixia at 250 on https://www.amazon.com/Best-Sellers-Camera-Photo-Camcorders/zgbs/photo/172421 looks to hit your price point.
This can order will be mostly for recoding my son's highschool soccer games. He's the goalie, so it maybe on tripod most of the game focused on the goal. But that's subject to change. So I need to be able to video the game. I've read reviews and can only budget $300 at most. Please help any advice is greatly appreciated.
