Didn't know where to put this. Have an upcoming birthday party for my little 4 yr old daugther. I have a 7D but would like to use it to take pictures. Thinking of buying a designated camcorder. Any recommendations of what brad or model to buy. My advance apologies for putting this in the camera forum as most here are knowlegdeable in this field.

HD vs SD would be your first consideration. If HD, tape or tapeless? Is this something to use around the house or would you want more of a Pro cam?

a great camcorder is the HV series. The HV20 can be found for a really good deal.
Shoots beautiful footage, and is very easy to use.

Just a thought

I would also recommend a Canon HV series. Lots of accessories and cult following on the internet.

The way you tend to upgrade, I would say just get a XH-A1 and be finished with it
