Agree with Ungermann. Your wife must want to film and, if so, she may have an idea of what she wants.
What does she intend to do with the results? Plug into the telly and watch a mixture of good and bad footage plus all the various noises the camera picks up?
She will need a decent video editor to create a usable video from the mishmash of shots plus add music or a voiceover to the final film.
If it is still your choice, choose a camcorder from the "trinity" (Canon, Panasonic or Sony), IMO HD is easier to edit than 4K and does not need a powerful computer while still giving excellent pictures. Look at the higher end of the consumer cams and select from the ones you fancy. My own choice would be between Canon and Panasonic as I have had bad experiences with Sony and my current camera is a Panasonic HC-V800 HD cam.
