Light some candles, set up that tripod and... hang on, you don't have a camcorder? There's a range of options for the amorous couple, from hard-disk-based models to the more traditional MiniDV tape style. Allow your flirtation with the small screen to indulge your deepest fantasies. Don't let a lack of technical know-how pour cold water on the fires of possibility -- here's our guide to the best camcorders for those feeling romantic. And remember: use the zoom sparingly. Nobody looks that good that close up.
High-definition fans will jump for the unbelievable resolution and crispness of the Sony HDR-FX1 -- this really is a professional-grade camcorder. You can even modify it to accept proper film-camera lenses -- it's not a job for the faint-hearted though. More modest lovers who still ache for a 1080 line image should check out the HDR-HC1. It may not have the punch of Sony's flagship model, but it's still an impressive beast.
For a more discrete shooting experience, the JVC Everio GZ-MC200 is a palm-sized, lightweight camcorder. Finally, for the acrobatic tryst, there's the Samsung Miniket. This camcorder can be head-mounted for a first-person perspective on that magical first-date moment.
