I need to buy a comcorder, to use mainly as a deck, I am looking for something in the $300 range. Maybe this is wishful thinking, but if I could I would like something that has a decent image too, for home movie stuff (family reunions, travel and such). I know, I know, I can't expect much more than crap for $300, but does anybody have any recommendations as to which brands or models are ok ? (panasonic, canon, etc.) Thanks
$300 camcorder, recommendations?

OK, since no one has any recommendations, I've been looking into the Canon ZR100, which retails for about $300. One thing Canon claims is that it can shoot true 16x9, for more pixels and thus higher resolution. I'm not sure if this is just pure exaggeration on their part, since it seems that most high end prosumer video cameras are not capable of true 16x9. Anyone have this camera or have any experience with it? Your thoughts?
