My mom said she would buy me a camcorder for xmas/bday so I am trying to do some research. I really dont do a whole lot with the one I have know but it is busted. Not sure I need all the bells and whistles but I do have 2 small kids that I record and for vacations. I havent gotten into editing, etc but might if I can find some time. Are there some midrange camcorders that I should look at? What should I be looking for in a camcorder? I havent been in the market since the HD ones came out so I am not all that familiar with all the features now. Any suggestions? Here are the CR ones:

23 models tested: #6 was Sony HDR-XR150 (hard drive) $600 #5 Canon Vixia HF M31(flash memory) $800. #4 JVC Everio GZ-HM550 (flash memory) $750 #3 Sony HDR-CR350V (hard drive) $1000 #2 Samsung HMX-S15 (flash memory) $900 #1 Sony HDR-CX550V (flash memory) $1200. Probably good deals on Internet today. # 4 and # 6 are CR best buys;rest all recommended dec. 2010.

Thanks so much.
