Hello. I am thinking of getting a digital camcorder and I am not sure on the good ones. I can figure out which cameras are good or not, but I am clueless on the uses. I am looking for a good camcorder that is best for recording tennis. I need slow motion playback, long battery-life, and I think I want miniDV because I hear they have better quality. I am not wanting to spend over $600. What are the best camcorders out there that may fit my description and would be good for me to record my tennis on? Thanks

Most camcorders have the same FPS so it doesn't matter. Just find a good deal. If you want better image quality find a 3CCD camcorder.

3-CCD ones are way too expensive. Im not looking to spend that much cash. I think I found one I like and will work pretty well. It is the Canon Elura 90.

You want to spend around 600 or less. The camcorder you linked to is 660. I did a quick froogle search and i found a 3ccd camcorder for 650

It's amazing what you can do by searching.

Make your own. The hardest part is building the charged-coupled device (CCD)....once you build that, the rest should be easy if you know electronics.

Total cost for do it yourself: $320 for a normal $700 cam.
