Of all of the high def camcorders out there, this is the one that looked the best when I checked them out and had the most advantages. The interface is very easy as the 3.2-inch LCD viewer is a touchscreen, and there are manual focusing controls. The greatest benefit, however, is the 120 GB hard drive, which means quite a lot less stress with respect to shooting (no spending money on tapes, which run out at the most inopportune moments anyway) and storage (you can only label so much on a tape) and importing (always a bitch on DV).
So... now I need to call it something.
What should I name my new camera?
Raz is coming by tonight, we're going to watch Batman Begins this evening and then go see The Dark Knight at midnight.
