what is CCDs?threshershark said:I like the Panasonic PV-GS320. It's a mini DV camcorder, and has 3 CCDs (it's probably the most affordable video camera that offers this kind of quality). I've seen it for about $380, it has very high quality video but only a 10x zoom.
The Panasonic PV-GS85 sacrifices some video quality, but has 32x optical zoom. It's a good one too.
