It depends on how much you like to zoom in... 40x optical is pretty good. Also have to consider the format it records in and how long it can record for. Offloading/downloading it if its on a hard drive vs. recording directly to a DVD.
I got a sony dcr-sr42 with 40x zoom and 30 gb harddrive and it takes excellent video footage and alright pictures...they work but the quality isn't the greatest with pictures. I love the simplicity of hooking it up via usb cable to the computer and its just drag and drop with the files and its fast to transfer files. its got touch screen for watching videos and deleting files. I love it a lot and have prolly 14 hours saved on the harddrive and it holds up to 20 hours of video too Posted via Mobile Device
