My trusty Canon MVX 250i mini DV camcorder is on the blink. The zoom control seems to continually want to zoom in whether you are recording or on playback. Now my question is do I go to the expense of seding it off for repair or do I look for another newer camcorder?
The MVX250i has turned out some wonderful results and I have been pleased with its facilities and performance (except the fact that in order to get to the manual controls you need to open the screen) but with newer technology and advances in specifications is it worth repairing only to find another fault developing within a short space of time?
What camera do you suggest to replace the 250i? It need to be something with facility for the addition of a wide angle lens (currently using a Tama digital pro SW 0.45X 37mm) and at least as good a resolution and clarity as the 250i.
Any advice or suggestions would be appreciated as I have lost touch with the current market.
