Hello I'm from Canada, looking to purchase good quality camcorder my budget is maximum CAD $700.00 Not sure if I should get with internal HD, or mini dvd How are the ones with mini tapes? Is video quality as good as mini dvd or hdd. Forget about high definition as they start at $900.00 & over. I am not a professional & will be using this to video family get togethers, parties, kids at home & some sporting events. I think Sony is probably the most reliable brand & that's the brand I believe I'll be looking at but not sure which models I should look at. Don't want something with lots if bells & whistles which I'll never use or would never figure out what they are used for at the same token I don't want something that will look like it's worth $50.00 Let me know what I should be looking for & thank you.
