hI there everyone, I am in need of a camcorder very very soon, and I am slightly confused at which type to buy. I have only a budget of £500. My concern is whether to go for a Mini DV camcorder for £499 or a DVD Camcorder for £499. I do like the features on the Sony DCR-HC42 Mini DV Camcorder, however the DVD camcorder, is a new thing, does this make it better? Should I go for the newer technology or the older one? Although Mini DV is not really old, it appears to be extremely poular. I have no preferences for a DVD Camcorder, as I have not looked at them properly, all I know is that I can get one for the same price as a Mini DV camcorder.
So basically which type is better the Mini DV (specifically the DCR-HC42 or any DVD camcorder which falls in the same £500 price bracket.
