I normally research electronics very thoroughly but this year I am out of my area of knowledge and out of time

My sister is about to have a baby and I would love to get her a HD Camcorder for filming the little one. She has a nice Nikon still camera so still features arent that important. The husband is technical so he can handle some advanced features.

The Panasonic HDC-SD600K for $399.00 deal plus free one day ship at Amazon is interesting.

Any suggestions in the $3-400.00 range would be really appreciated. Thanks everyone!

My only advice (coming from a guy with a 3 yr old, 1 yr old, multiple still cameras and an HD vid camera) is to give them an IOU for one video camera on his/her 6 month birthday.

Seriously, stills are better for capturing babies prior to 6 or 7 months, imo. Babies don't start making good videos until they are at least able to move about a bit.

6 months in the video cam world can see a lot of change.

Just something to think about.
