I'm just looking about for a cheapish budget camcorder, ideally around £150 (or nearish if its worth it.)
I've previously used analogue and digitized, so I've got little experience in what makes a good DV camera, although I know it needs mini DV tapes as I want to edit them. I was looking on the Canon website, as I know someone with an MV 700 and it works well but I couldn't determine the difference between their Megapixel and Non-Megapixel range.
My main requirements are:
16:9 true recording (the world's getting wider, let's join in!)
DV (not DVD, HD etc.)
Compact / Lightweight (no real max weight, just something thats easy to carry around and not an over-the-shoulder job, but you'd never get one of them in my budget anyway.)
The budget might be little thin but I was just wondering what's available. I'd prefer a new one, not an Ebay one.
If anyone has a decent budget camera or would recommend one (or avoid one) please say, all info is much appreciated
