Hi

Require an expert in camcorders, im looking to purchase a high end camcorder - and am looking at the panasonic range.

Im thinking of the Panasonic HDC HS900

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Panasonic-HDC-HS900-Black-Full-HD-Camcorder-220GB-3D-Compatiable-FEDEX-EXPRESS-/120843269462?pt=UK_AudioTVElectronics_Video_Camcorders&hash=item1c22d1f556

Or the more recent Panasonic HC X900

http://www.pixmania.co.uk/uk/uk/11754443/art/panasonic/hc-x900-high-definition-c.html

Obviously the big difference is the hard drive, but quality is just as important to me and I really dont know which one to go for, - are they more or less the same.

ISP - I have the Panasonic TM900 - which is the same as the HDC HS900, only without the hard drive. Great camera - but the X900 has a wider zoom (useful for indoor shooting) and is arguably better in low light. I personally would not want a camera with a hard drive in it. I have enough trouble with them in my computers :-)

If you don't mind spending a few pounds for SD cards, I would get the HC X900.

Cheers,
