Wouldn't $750 be considered a mid range camcorder?

I just see no reason for ones with less features or abilities to be marketed.
Not when a $350 digicam can do as well for most people's needs.

100 percent wrong...

I agree with Chato .... forget about 5 years old hd, I'll take the 10 year old mini dv without hd!

So, switching from a total sceptic, to someone who sees this idea catching on, yeah, why not? Who needs a cheap camcorder when a cheap SLR will do the same trick.

Of course with a record like mine...
