My wife-to-be and I are going to Hawaii for our honeymoon next week, and it just occurred to us that it might be nice to have a video camera for the trip, what with all the beautiful scenery and all. So this is a short-order education request--I do not know thing one about camcorders, yet I am hoping to purchase one tomorrow.
Model recommendations are welcome. Advice such as best brands, critical features not to overlook, what media format is best (tapes, hard drives, solid state memory, lions, tigers, bears), etc. would be nice.
I'm not sure what you exactly get for your money in the video camera space, either. I don't really expect to use this thing more than a few times a year, but I don't want to buy a piece of junk just the same. I think I would be fine paying around $400 or so, but if that's not reasonable please tell me so!
