    Hi everyone.

    I'm looking into buying a new video camera. I bought a cheap Panasonic (PV-GS15) when I was 13 with my bar-mitzvah money, and now I need to buy a new camera since the Panasonic broke. Panasonic (and the local video store) said it's not worth fixing since it has old technology and would cost well over $100 to fix. It has multiple problems that are all probably due to abuse.

    I'm looking in the $200-$300 price range. Wanting something durable and fairly easy to use, but most importanlty a camera that will enable me to upload videos to the computer without difficulty.

    Thanks for any advice! I'll be posting some of my still pictures in another sub-forum soon.

    Probably not the best site to look for a video camera at.

    Just saying...

    Kind of what I figured, but I figured this is a good place to try since there's no video camera forums I could find.
