I'm shopping around for my father for christmas present and I want to get him new camcorder, since he has an old one that still uses the tapes.
He doesn't shoot that often, only when we have family get togethers, when we go up north to cottage and special occasions.

I see that there are these two that fall in the price range that I could afford for him, but I'm clueless which one has what pros and cons.
Could use some input from you guys here.

I vote for the Sony.

More zoom, an option to shoot 1080p60 and I like the Sony software.
