Canon VIXIA HF100 Flash Memory HD
A few years ago, I purchased a handycam for a low price but when I have it in HD it is extremely choppy. So no matter what I did, I would have to take it out of HD to record a good video. However, now I am looking to get a better camera. I still have a budget but I am looking at a certain one at the moment and would like to know if you all think it would be worth the buy?
Please tell me what I could expect from this camera?
I am also looking at this one...
Mainly the one above because it has a higher MP. The first one has 3.3, that is lower than my phone so maybe that is not a good idea...
I would go with the Sony. You can get it cheeper ar B&H http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/produc.../941/KBID/1221 The MP isn't quite as important as the lens. The camcorder has a MUCH better lens than your cell phone and it will be a faster picture, so less blur.
I've used a Vixia HF10, which is basically the same camera but also has 16GB of internal memory as well as the card slot the HF100 has, for the last several years. I have nothing but positive things to say about it. Its been a joy to use and I plan to continue using it until it dies.
However, I can also argue that the HF100 is several years old and getting dated, while the Sony model you reference is a 2012 model.
I have the Sony CX 550 and love it. It is great in low light and has sharp image and color.
