you have hit the nail on the head HD is the future!

What's this like in lowlight?

SD.. there is no point with the way things are heading. Hence why many retailers are reducing the SD video camera range.

Exactly.
I would spend the extra and buy a camcorder with a better resolution.

> * Sensor Resolution: 800 Kpix

Two years ago, I went for a Sony camcorder with a 1 Megapixel resolution, and 18 months later, my new Sony digital camera can produce better results than my camcorder. When my daughter was born, I used the recording facilities on my camera, rather than camcorder.

The upgrade to the camera I bought is available for £166 at Amazon:
amazon.co.uk/Son…OKU

800Kpix is a fairly low resolution.
So, spend a little extra and go for a better resolution camcorder, if you can afford it. Or go for a decent digital camera instead.

No point spending this amount on a standard definition device, spend a little more for a high definition device, simples

Beware comet customer care is not very good if things go wrong..
