Can anyone recommend a good camcorder that a bit cheaper and gives good quality but is sd card or hard drive? I'm looking for one but don't need it to be full hd.

Thanks

I've got one of these and I'm impressed:

However, I did get mine for £169 from Argos as they had a blatant error in the catalogue that they changed after they had to sell it to me! :thumbsup:

It depends really what the spec is like. Less than £200 would be great. £300 at a real push.

Thanks very much. Rep added for help

If you want something stylish that you can carry around easily and use quickly, go for the Panasonic SDR-S7 for about £200. If you're not so bothered about stylish appearance and would like the same camera in a rugged/waterproof body, AND want to save £50 ... get this http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/173097/panasonic-sdr-s10-sd-camcorder-149-/

Don't forget Quidco.

Despite what some others say, the mpeg4 video shot by digital still cameras isn't a patch on the mpeg2 you will get with the Panasonic camcorder. Okay, the low-light capability isn't great and you can forget using it for stills, but it's supremely portable and quick and easy to use. I have its predecessor, the SV-AV100, and it beats full-size camcorders over and over because I take it with me when a full size camcorder would be a burden. All "solid state", so nothing to break or jam. :thumbsup:

Hope this helps.

Lower spec (K series, 720p) models in this new range available under £400 with the free external HD, worth a look and probably cheapest way to decent HD video.

I have a camera that shoots 1080i and 720p 60fps and I always shoot at the 720p setting. Increased framerate, no interlace and much more manageable to edit.

There's no reviews for these yet, apart from a brief overview of the A100F on CNet, but at this price point they'd have to be really bad/flawed, not to be worth the money.
I have a Sanyo Xacti HD1000, which is flawed in some respects, but it fits in the pocket and is great as a travel cam.
If I had the money I would go for a Canon HV20, which is the real enthusiasts choice at the lower budgetry end and happily put up with the old school tape encoding involved because the picture is near faultless. It's available for just over £500 from Amazon (though the price keeps fluctuating) or if you want the convnience of removable media, the Canon HF100 is available for sightly more.
If I didn't have a HD cam at all and/or wanted to keep the costs down, then I'm sure these Toshibas would make the perfect starting point and just get the best model/spec you can afford. Apart from being restricted to 720p (not a big problem for me), I think the other main difference between the K and A is that the A series has a wide angle (true 35mm) lens, so perhaps for that reason, the A40 at £485 inc. 500gb external HD is the pick of the range if you could stretch that far.
They all have an SD HC slot to expand on the inbuilt memory.
