Which Camcorder?

  Sibbo 14:13 20 Jan 2008

I'm considering purchasing a camcorder for when I go away on holiday with my wife and two children, but I'm afraid that all of the technical jargon for these items leaves me baffled. Do I buy a HDD one, or DVD etc? Can anyone recommend a good one from their own personal experience? Thanks

If you could give us an idea of your budget, we could probably advise you better.

Of course doh! I meant to put that in my original post.

Done it again!! That'll teach me to do two things at once. I'll be prepared to spend up to £500'ish. Thanks.

from a Mini DV tape. I have a Canon HV10, which I can thoroughly recommend click here I don't know this retailer but their price is the best I could find.

How does Mini DV tape models compare to the newer memory card models that are now available?

I would agree that mini-DV offers convenience, and also a price advantage.

I would suggest you consider the Sony DCR-HC96. Well reviewed, and well within your budget.
