1) HDD and/or Flash Memory support for storage media : If it has flash memory then I don't have to worry about even connecting my camcorder to laptop. Just use the flash memory. Life becomes so easy.
2) Night vision capability (it is different than regular night mode) : So that dark doesn't stop me from filming. This is very important feature for me. You can shoot independent of light.
3) HD quality : Obviously.
Does anybody have camcorder with Night Vision capability? I found one from Sony but it is very costly. My budget is around $500.
Anything that I should include in my list? Should I go for Sony and get bind to use memory duo stick instead of microSD card which is way cheaper? Does Cannon provide better quality in camcorder then Sony? (Cannon is best for DigiCam).
