I use the Panasonic HC-V750 which is an excellent camera. The later model is the HC-V770 which has additional features. Most run on SD cards. A 32Gb Class 10 SD card should do.
You should also budget for a decent video editor. I use Corel's VideoStudio which covers all my needs. Corel supply a minimum specification for your PC to run VideoStudio on their web site.
I am planning to buy a camcorder/handycam for this thanksgiving. My usage is mostly for kids (indoor or outdoor). Please suggest me.
One with SD card? a specific model or brand?
I see few on sale
1. Panasonic HC-V270K
2. Canon VIXIA HF R600 White
