Digital Camcorder formats - Digital8 vs Mini DV

  John Christopher 19:28 16 Jun 2003

I'm interested in getting a digital camcorder - not a top of the range model, but one that'll do the basics and allow me to film my baby who is due in the next few weeks. I'm quite interested in Sony's ranges, but I'm confused as to whether there is a great difference in quality between the Digital8 and MiniDV formats ? (There seems to be a substantial difference in price for what seem to be otherwise similar specification Sony models). Thanks for your help...
