Canon Legria HV40 HDV camcorder

 

A feature-packed high-definition camcorder that records to (gasp!) MiniDV tape

Superb 1080i video quality, good low-light performer, plenty of advanced features and controls

I had a camera, 9 mega-pixels, but didn't do that good of video. I was okay with it, but after I saw the quality of HD, I saw that I hadn't seen anything! This camcorder is great, shoots in stunning HD, has 10x zoom, and weighs an extremely light 1.8...
