Was looking at this after reading some about it on this forum. I am looking for a good camcorder/camera for my wife trying to stay between $200 and $350. Is there a better camcorder/camera around this range? She was looking for video recording first and stills second.

If going the pure camcorder route, you can get a refurbished Canon M50 for $299

Welcome to the forum!

You didn't provide much detail about your wife's intentions. But, few on this forum would disagree that the Panasonic LX7 would not be about right.

My vote would be for a Canon EOS M with the 18-55 kit lens for $320 while they're still on sale. She'll be getting very high quality video and stills for not a lot of money.

The only reason to get a traditional camcorder would be if she needs to record for longer than 22 minutes of continuous video or if you need super fast autofocus to keep track of kids or sports.

Other than those two limitations, you'll get higher quality video and stills from the EOS M than from a camcorder or point and shoot.

Good luck with your decision!
