New video camera... THinking about this one.. RFC

Basically looking for opinions on this cam or possible similar recommendations.

The Sony HDR-SR12

I want something HD, that is HDD based so I don't have to mess with tapes.. I saw the smaller 60gb version at Costco..

I like the fact that it takes good quality stills (10mp)

I have read a review or two... THat said it will be my first video camera, so any constructive thoughts would be appreciated

I know it's a bit spendy.. but I don't want to mess around and end up buying two...

Thinking of buying that for my girls b-day but the reviews say lowlight video is very bad... Could you let me know what you think and maybe try out the low light for yourself. She does not need anything too fancy but I would like to gether a decent camcorder. Thanks
