Summary I was looking for Camcorder Which is easy to operate even for my parents. As they are not that much into computer, I decided to go for dvd camcorder.
I seen the same range Canon and Sony camcorders. Problem with Canon Camcorder is it comes with many switches, which can turn into complex operations. I also believe that Optical image stabilizer is better than Electronic Image stabilizer.
This camcorder is coming with 42X optical zoom!! which is quite higher...It also comes with Advance O.I.S....When I seen the operation mode..
Trust me, it is very simple to use...even a kid can operate it. I made my mind and I just bought it. I went to India and show it to my parents. We bought Sony mini DVD-RW discs.
When I seen the result of camera in 34 inch tv, I was so surprised with the video quality and sound quality....It was really good. I am pure technical guy and If I am looking for DVD camcorder option, I should say, this camera deserve its place. I strongly recommend this product. Thanks.
