No more "hard discs" on camcorders, for a good reason: they break and memory is cheap. You can get a 64GB sd card for $45. So, now you can choose any brand and level of camcorder you want (some take two cards and relay - seamlessly record across cards as you shoot).

I think you should give Sony Cameras a try. The Sony HDR-SR11 10.2-MP 60GB has a great image for its price range. The Sony PJ710 is also a nice choice. Both are capable of taking ScanDisk format cards and the PJ710 even has a built-in projector to view larger images on the go. so you don't have any regrets, try renting one first to see if you like it.

1. Get better hardware and software to avoid "freazeing".

2. Learn about interlacing and de-interlacing to avoid "zig zag lines". Alternatively, get a camera that shoots in progressive mode to avoid dealing with "zig zag lines" altogether.

3. Teach yourself and make an informed choice.

4. Do not listen to a "lead AV tech" who pushes a five-year old interlaced-only HDD-based camcorder.

Yeah but those "ScanDisk format" cards are really something...
