So here's an update, for the longest time i've had my eye on the CX350v but it was just a bit shy of my price range of around 500 or so, but recently i took to ebay to see what options i had. I saw the HDR-PJ10 w/ no bids, brand new, no reserve, going for $500... i put a bid in and won it for $520 including shipping. Now here's the kicker, the very next day, i stop by best buy and the CX350 i've been obessing about is now on clearance for only $520!! Technically i've won a camera already, but the one i was kinda wanting more is now in my price range. The thing that i'm wondering about is, how difference is the user interface with last years sony camcorders vs this years? They look pretty diff, and i know sony is known for kinda having somewhat confusing menu system. I'm semi tempted to 're-eBay' the PJ10 and get the CX350... Any thoughts? thanks in advance.
