Choosing the right camcorder depends on your ultimate interests in recording. If convenience is your main interest you might look at a simple Flash based camcorder. They are lightweight and portable and are inexpensive, however the storage space tops out much quicker than an an Internal Hard Drive based camera. If massive storage is your concern the Hard Drive based camera offers that. But you might sacrifice size and convenience.

For longer recording times, buy an extra, higher-capacity battery: Nothing's more frustrating than losing a shot because you ran out of juice.
Try out the camera's controls before you buy: You want to like working with your camera!
