I want to buy a camcorder, does anyone have any input on DVD cams?

What do you have and what do you like/dislike about it?

My brother-in-law just bought a DVD camcorder. I don't know a whole lot about them but when I asked him how much recording time you get from the DVD, he said it depends on the speed you have set. It is like the VHS, you have settings like SP and LP. That tells me it may not be a DVD format (not sure), but I would guess it is an mpeg format.

I use a digital 8 and love it. One important thing is to get a good optical zoom, you will thank me later. Mine is 25x optical and gets great close ups at far distances. Some camcorders you buy only have 10x-15x zoom and once you pass that zoom it goes to digital zoom. And digital zoom statrs to get blurry fast.
