Buying a camcorder


First, I suggest you consult a web buying guide, such as:

The camera you mention has a built in hard drive for media storage.  The main drawbacks are image quality as the picture is highly compressed and you must export your media to your computer.  This feature is either really handy or an inconvenience - it all depends on your preference.

Handycam shuts off on it's own...


do you have HDD Smart Protection on?
The hard disk will automatically shut down in this mode (which can be turned on or off) if the camcorder is dropped in order to save data from corruption or loss.

When Drop Protection is enabled, the camcorder automatically shuts off when it senses sudden, jerky movement

Loose connection between base and camera causes it to shut down automatically.
