I'm looking to purchase my first camcorder to record my soon to be born son. I also plan on using it to possible record videos to a youtube channel. I've never owned a camcorder, but I'm tech savvy as I work as an IT Manager in my 9 to 5. I didn't want to spend more than $800.00. I saw a recent post that Bill had recommended the Sony 16GB HDR-GW77V Waterproof camcorder. I thought that looked pretty interesting and I liked the small form factor with the same capabilities as a larger form factor with waterproof and shock proof to boot. I just wanted to have a couple of other options recommended from the expects in this community or maybe the GW77V is a good choice.
