I'm interested in purchasing a digital video camcorder. Nothing too elaborate, just for home movies and such.

I dont know anything about them though. Is there anything in particular I should be looking for? Do I need one that records to DVD so I can display it on our television?

Any good deals out there? Or are any of you ready to upgrade and want to sell yours? Thanks in advance!

You can play any camcorder right on your television, digital or not. You will need a digital one to make your own DVD's though I think. I bought a digital one at Costco earlier this year to make home movie DVD's of the kid. Make sure the camera and your computer have a firewire or IEEE-1394 port and get a DVD burner for your computer. The firewire blows the socks off the USB connection. You'll probably have to buy Nero's burning software to get it all to work right. Anyway, I can make home movies now and burn them on DVD's. Pretty cool.
