New camcorder?

Anyone out there using a mini-dv camcorder that they really like? Daughter's dropping hints about one as a graduation present and after surfing various review sites including Consumer Reports, I don't seem to see any that really stand out except for the high-end ones. Really don't want to spend over about $300-400. I'm sure she'll be happy regardless, but I would like SOME idea of which way to go.

i have a Panasonic pv-gs19 that i got a year or so ago. I like it alot. Got a great deal on it off ebay. I spoke to the owner and he had received 2 cameras as gifts, and kept the higher end one, and sold this one, still new in the unopened box!

Too late. Bought a Panasonic over the weekend; not the specific one tae recommended, but very nice. Will have to post back my user's review once she starts using it (graduation in 33 days). Price was somewhat of an issue, not sure if I would categorize it as "major".
