    I'm buying a new camcorder and have the field narrowed down to 3 different models that have similiar features and prices. I just thought I would see if anyone on here could give me the pro's and con's of either of these and maybe help steer me in the right direction. I'll mainly use it to tape dog agility trials with fast moving action at a distance it either bright sunlight or low light horse barn. Here are the models I'm looking at. Any other idea would be welcome as well:
    Sony SR82
    Panasonci SDR-H200
    JVC MG255
    Any thoughts would be appreciated.

    Generally speaking, one thing to consider is that the compression schemese from HDD cams are inferior to miniDV. If you're doing a lot of fast-motion zoom, then you're going to get a lot of artifacts.
