Question about canon zr800 camcorder

I’m looking to get a cheap camcorder for recording some videos at some local tournaments. I already have a Panasonic GS320 but my dad bitches when I carry it out of the house. I’ve been looking at the Canon ZR800 camcorder, has anyone used this before to record, I’ve been doing some reading up on it and some persons have stated some issues with motor noise, but I’d like to get feedback otherwise.
