What Camcorder to buy if shooting indoor video

by DZ2009 / June 22, 2009 11:53 PM PDT

Need help on buying a small camcorder (something under $350) with an SD card for storage.
Will be shooting inside video with some low light and some outside.
Someone said to get the PanasonicSDR-S26, need more feedback.
Thanks for your help.

not for under $350. $350 isn't even close.

Try indoor lighting.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
