So I just got my taxes back and I've been looking at different models of camcorders that I would like to get in order to record my first trad hunt for deer season this year. I've been looking at the JVC Everio and the Canon VIXIA HF R400
For those who record their hunts are either of these good choices or should I go with something else. All I am looking for is good quality camera (image stabilization, etc.)which can effectively record with good quality in low light and have decent zooming to get up close on the shot to watch the arrow strike the target.
I have a budget of $300 but willing to spend up to $400 if it is worth it
What do you guys suggest?

Low light quality depends greatly on what ones "definition" of quality is.
There is no camera short of a professional video camera that lays down footage good enough for television or commercial DVD production during the first an last 15 minutes of legal shooting hours…….and many professional cameras don`t do very well either.
The least expensive pro camera that I am aware of that does really well in low light is the Sony HVR-Z5U…….nearly 4k for nothing but the camera.
