Contemplating a camcorder purchase

katefisherAugust 19, 2009

I hope I'm on the right forum. I am looking to buy a very simple, beginner camcorder for my Dad for his birthday. I'm up for a maximum of $300.00. I know my Dad will use this if I buy it for him although it will probably be intermittent.

I have never used a camcorder before and have no idea where to start. My Dad is pretty camera/computer user friendly so should be able to manage a basic device no problem.

Anyone game for giving me a bit of guidance? I don't mind admitting I am flying blind:)

Thank you.
