What camcorder to buy

  User-F28ABD19-22EA-4002-982DD1EDE899711E 22:07 30 Dec 2003

I am thinking of buying a camcorder in the sales but have no idea what to look for i.e. Value for money, What make, How much to spend, etc. Can anyone help?

Only you know how much you can spend, give us an idea and i'm sure there will be some suggestions.

I'm thinking of spending up to approx £500.00

An excellent machine is the Canon 630i which is the model up from the Canon 600i in the PCA chart.

The only difference being the 630 has a memory card for taking stills.

Dixons have it on offer at £399.99 until Saturday click here

For excellent reviews, forums etc. on Camcorders try: simplydv.co.uk

As a website, it is to 'Camcorders' what Pcadvisor is to 'computers'- truly excellent!

A camera with both DV in and DV out can be more usefull, However you may not require it, it all depends on how you are going to use it.
