Which camcorder is best for video and stills?

by Mayor / March 19, 2007 4:55 PM PDT

Price range $1000 +/- not including tripods, external mics, etc.

Going to Brasil, Amazon and Argentina which makes size important. That is one of the main reason I am looking for a dual mode: video and still pictures in one unit. I can go higher for good quality. Of course another way to go is a still camera that takes movie clips. But it seems the digi still movie cameras are larger than cam corders, am i wrong in this assumption?

Any recommendqations will be greatly appreciated.

Health and happiness to all.

John

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
