With the birth of our first child we've decided to get a camcorder and with sooo many choices out there we are overwhelmed. I'm looking for the following:

1. Easy to use
2. Point and shoot
3. Can go right from camcorder to dvd player
4. Decent in low light
5. Editing is nice but probably won't be doing alot of it

I saw the Sony HDR-UX1 got good ratings but it doesn't sound like it works with most dvd players. We have a Panasonic DVD-S35 and a Panasonic DVD-S97. Any suggestions is greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Dan

When you limit yourself to buying a MiniDVD camcorder in the $500-$900 range, there can't be that many choices? None of them will be decent in low-light. DVD media is not easy to edit so #5 will be easy to fill. They all should be adequate in your 1, 2 and 3 list of needs. If you can't find a deal on one of them just make a list and throw a dart at the list.

What if I said the media just needs to be easy to play directly on our TV? I guess it doesn't have to copy directly to DVD just thought it would be easier.
