For anyone looking to buy a camcorder i found this one at Jessops, Having a built in hard drive means you do not need to keep buying tapes or dvds making life easier for some!
Looking at sony ones of about the same details, they are about 100-150 more so i think this is a great deal if your looking for a reasonably cheap HDD camcorder!

Please dont be mean i am new!
Record up to 36 hours of footage on the Panasonic SDR-H40
Allows up to 36 hours of continuous shooting (when mains powered in LP mode) without having to clear any data space. Also features joystick menu control for rapid access to main functions
The huge 42x optical zoom allows for very large image magnification without any loss of resolution caused by digital zooming. The Optical Image Stabiliser (O.I.S.) is again incorporated into the lens setup to counteract camera shake before the image is recorded.
Pure Color Engine and MPEG 2 Engine
The Pure Color Engine image processor separates out image information at an early stage for better colour reproduction especially on zoomed images.
The MPEG 2 Engine uses variable bit rate technology and is designed to carefully monitor motion and therefore gives great precision and smoothness to action and sports scenes with complex motions.
High Quality Widescreen and 2,7" LCD Display
Records at the same resolution as true 16:9 widescreen for high quality playback on your widescreen TV. The 2.7 inch LCD monitor is also in 16:9 wide format for a large full screen image that is easy to view. The monitor also has five brightness levels to make viewing easier in bright lighting conditions.
Can easily be connected to the optional Panasonic VW-BN1 DVD burner for easy transfer onto DVD disc for any DVD player.
Also includes the following for easier, high quality shooting:
Disk Navigator- Quick search and edit facilities
Instant On/ Off
2.1 sec Quick Start
