I'm looking for some suggestions on a digital camcorder. It's for an older person who is slightly technically challenged. I'm looking for something that can be used in the same way as a digital camera, in the sense that you take a usb cable and plug it up to a computer and download the videos off. Is this even possible? I know nothing about camcorders.

Thanks.

Oh, i'm sort of looking at this one: http://www.amazon.co...3...0601&sr=8-1

Merry Christmas :)

Yeah, that's what the main camcorders on the market offer. I'd suggest a hard drive one, so that you can just record the movie and out it on the comp, and edit it if you want. I'd much rather have that then have to buy tapes and whatnot. Depending on your budget, you may also consider buying one with High definition (HD) so that it won't be so outdated in a few years.

I'd would therefore recommend any, with a hard drive capacity of at least 30gb. I'm sure you can find heaps of them if you google :)
