new camera

Got me a new video camera for fathers day.

I have never really had one. So Friday, Kim says that for Fathers day I get to get a video camera. Now, we have to do it Sunday as Kim is due the following Friday and we must have a video camera this time around. We have about two hours of Colette’s child hood on video.

Saturday night I do some intense online research into cameras and come up with three possibilities. The Cannon Elura 90, the Sony HG-42 (i think), and the Panasonic PV-GS150. All from 600 to 700 dollars.

My eye is set on the Panasonic as it’s got three ccds for capturing color as opposed to the other two that have only one. I don’t know if it makes a difference, but it sounds cool, eh?

We hop down to Fry’s electronics where I hem and haw for about an hour over the three and end up getting the Panasonic.

It is cool 🙂 It even takes low res still at 2.3 megapixel. The best part of all, is that it has a joy stick to move around the on screen menu!
