Decent budget camcorder


Recommended Posts

Looking for some suggestions on a camcorder. Not looking to spend a great deal more than £150 (although looking there are some HD options up around £200). It will primarily be used to film american football practices outdoors. My specs are as follows:

  • Decent battery life - a removeable battery would be good so I can have a spare charged but isn't mandatory
  • Good storage capacity - removeable media, i.e. SD card and a camera which supports good-sized cards
  • Quick to transfer data to laptop and in a commonly used format - this is the key thing, I want to be able to fire it across onto my laptop, throw away what I don't want and then share it quickly using dropbox or whatever, so the files need to be in a commonly used format
  • Tripod mountable

Would be keen to hear of any to check out, any to avoid and anywhere to consider looking to buy. your thoughts would be welcomed.
