We have Sony DCR-HC96E which was bought in 2007 its still going good but its a pain to get the recordings from the camcorder to DVD I have used a Philips DVD hdd recorder but the DVD recorder will not finalize the discs before you knock the Philips it was so easy to use, and I can still copy the camcorder to the hdd so as we can watch again from the Philips

I have a Panasonic DVD recorder hdd but its a bit complicated to get to the end result DVD!

So I would like some recommended camcorder moderately priced to replace the Sony DCR-HC96E to be used for our sport of motorcycle trials which is sometimes in low light in wooded area's.

When we were looking originally in 2007 the hdd models were all the go then but was advised to go for the DV tape model I'm sure things have now changed for the better, If I can't afford the new ones suggested perhaps a recent 2nd hand one would do?

We paid $1100 NZ dollars 2007 We would like to spend about $500ish

Thanks in anticipation

If it's for sports/outdoor use why not get a Go-Pro? Creating DVD disks is a bit old school now.

Because we are old school and are used to a camcorder!

DVD-Rs aren't an archival format and will become unreadable with time. It would be better to transfer to a computer.
