    I'm saw one on sale at Frys, and thought I'd ask if anyone here might
    have one and can give me a thumbs up or down on it. Basically I need
    one for work -- just a good, noise-free record.... nothing professional
    quality.

    34x optical zoom
    900x digital zoom
    1/6-inch 680 K pixel CCD

    Panasonic, Sony or a Canon.

    Thanks. How about Sharp? I have an older tape camcorder and it worked
    great.

    Where do you get your info from?

    The last 3 devices I bought made by Panasonic were crap. Fax machine - VERY difficult to use (fax machine? difficult? sure was!!); TV/VCR -- anti-intuitive remote, again hard to believe it was Panasonic. Last was an answering machine that lasted about 3 months.

    If you Google for something like 'best camcorder' you will see that most
    reviewers will suggest Panasonic, Sony and Canon more or less in that
    order. It's not me suggesting these makes, but the professionals who
    review them.

    Regards,
    John.
