Video camera search
I'm looking for a new digital Videocam that uses SD cards, has an optical zoom and is medium priced. Any suggestions?

Both Canon and Panasonic make excellent video cameras. I like Canon better but both are good.

Canon go here.........

Thanks Brian. I only found 2 choices for the Panasonic and I was surprised to find that many of the consumer Canons were not HD, just wide screen.
still looking.

What price range are you looking at?

How are you defining wide screen and HD?

When I looked everything from the VIXIA HF R100 at $379.99 and above was 1920 x 1080.

I settled on the vixia HFR20. I didn't need the 21 with more capacity because I just put the SD card into the slot of my macbook pro. I try not to have another cable around to misplace.

Thanks for your imput.
