what do you think of flash memory camcorders?

I thought I was in the market for a mini-dv camcorder. I did not realize the obstacles to eventually getting the video onto DVD from this device.

Kid at BestBuy steered me toward Samsung SC-MX20. Can record on up to a 32 GB SD card.

Reviews make it seem like it is intended for YouTube. Not interested in that at all -- just want my video to end up on a DVD for us to enjoy for years to come.

Any problems anyone can see with this option?

Depends on if you're going to use it indoors.

Looks OK, but see if you can find the Lux rating.

I bought a JVC 30 GB hard drive camcorder a few years ago and then found out it is 15 Lux.

Some Sonys and others are down to 1 Lux.
