XMAS 2012 Camcorder Deals, Sales, Discounts

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I am a pure Costco kink of guy. Love their return policy. So here is my dilemma. Want to get my first camcorder to try a new hobby at the end of life. I don't have too many years left, so don't want to invest a fortune of my Gracie dog's inheritance. Here are my 2012 Costco Xmas sales on camcorders. Which do you suggest for me. Thanks

Sony HDR-CX 260 bundle w/ 16gb flash memory - $80 off brings it down to $369 until xmas.

Canon HFR 300 w/ case + xtra battery, 8gb card - $50 off makes it $249

Panasonic V500 w/ 8gb card and case - no discount. $279


I like saving money on their discounts. So, is the Sony above that much better than the Panasonic for $90 less. Or better yet, is the Canon the one to buy at $120 less. Any of these are in my price range, but I would be happy knowing I got a great camera I would enjoy just as much for less money.

I'd knock that Panasonic off the list. The effective video resolution is not even close to the Sony or Canon.

I'm old too. I used to have your yellow labs sister. Go with the Sony. It comes with good software.
