    Question video camera advice

    Looking at getting a camcorder, but don't really know much about all the technical stuff.
    I bought my step-daughter an 8 mega-pixel digital camera about 6 months ago, and it ALSO takes video (which I was unaware)

    She took some video of my sons birthday party and it looked pretty decent.
    So my question is:
    Is the quality or format of the videos taken with her camera much worse than that which would be recorded with an actual camcorder? (I believe her video is AVI)

    yes the actuall camera would get better result. ur video from digicam may be good and its gettin better but still far from what actual camera will get.

    I would recommend getting a high definition camcorder, the quality is much better and just means anything you shoot will stand the test of time better. Standard def on a modern TV just looks awful, especially when you compare it to HD. With the prices on HD camcorders tumbling it just makes sense. I would check out camcorderinfo.com to compare models.
