      Buying Camcorder

      BJewel, it sounds like u know what u require from a camcorder and u know your budget. The only way to find something is to do some footwork at the wekend and hit the local stores. Go to your local PC store and ask to see their what they have, theyshould be able to provide demo’s of how it all works. If you buy on someone elses advice, you could get something to expensive or doesn’t do what you wwant.
      Thats how I buy things, hope you find what u r looking for!!
      all the best

      Don’t get Hi 8!

      Digital 8 is the only way to go, with FireWire. Of course, your machine has to have FireWire, too.

      I bought a Hi 8 several years ago, when it seemed like a good idea. It never really took off and was rapidly superseded by digital tape.
