Best camcorder for a Christmas Gift!

We use Sony HDD camcorders in my school lab and they are great. And now they have gone way down in price! The picture is amazing, they hold a huge amount of footage and can take stills as well. Click the camera or link to see the details.

B & H Photo - your best camcorder resource

I buy all my equipment from B& H Photo. I have purchased about 50+ camcorders in the last few years, I do my research at B & H, I research prices at NexTag and I always go back to buy at B & H. They have the best camcorders, always competitive prices and I trust their customer service. They know what they are doing.

Sony 8mm, Video8 and Hi8 refurbished camcorders

I will post a longer discussion about this format soon, but if your precious old footage is on these tapes and your camcorder is broken, you can buy a refurbished Hi8, Video8 or 8MM camcorder here:
Refurbished 8MM, Hi8 & Video8
What you have to decide is whether to buy a refurbished camcorder and transfer all your old footage yourself OR send it to a duplicating company. If you have hours and hours and you want it all, it might be cheaper to buy a refurbished camcorder. Then get a Pinnacle Dazzle which will connect to your computer via USB. I know this link says Dazzle DVD but it will let you transfer to DVD OR just upload your footage to your computer so you can edit the footage.
