Dont know where you live but they sell them off in qvc warrington birchwood..you would have to call to ask before you made a journey tho.

Get a decent compact camera with video capability - I'd recommend the Panasonic TZ range - I have a TZ7 and it's taken amazing videos of my boys.

I agree with the above.I have a sony camcorder but never use it since I got my fujifilm camera.It taked hd footage and the quality is amazing.

it's up to you I guess, but you'll find that you'll need a camcorder that'll cost over £250 to get the quality of video the TZ range can produce.

Check out your current camera and see what it's like. Why have two things when you can have one that does both equally as good.

If you want, I can PM you a video I took with this camera.

The TZ's have a decent zoom on them which you can use whilst filming. It depends on what you're using it for - and the OP only wants to film her kids, so I'd reckon a decent capable camera would suffice. Mine certainly does.

My mistake i thought the tz7 only had a fairly limited 12x zoom, when compared to the 50x plus you get with most camcorders

According to this review the image is badly blurred if you zoom while filming, So it wouldn't be on my list of camcorder replacements

No need for sarcasm.

You haven't read what the requirements of the OP are. She wants videos of her kids - not filming a band at a festival.

The TZ is more than adequate for this, plus it takes great stills - not many (if any) camcorders do both well in that price range.

All that said, I think it's important to focus (if you excuse the pun) on what the OP wants rather than a debate on the merits and demerits of cameras v camcorders.

Whatever WTP - I'm more than happy with the videos I've shot of my kids - no problems with blur.
