Re: CAMCORDER HELP!!!!!

Camcorder acronym soup can be tough, two overloaded terms:

SD = Secure Digital OR Standard Definition

HD = Hard Drive OR High Definition

 

My personal reccommendation is, if your budget allows, a flash memory based (Secure Digital) high definition camcorder.

 

The Canon HF series are usually good choices.  I have the HF100 and it's great, Canon is releasing new models right around now, the HF S200 is brand new, you can probably get some good deals on the older HF200 now.
