Thread: New Camcorder - HELP PLEASE

    Default New Camcorder - HELP PLEASE

    Hi everyone
    I am looking at replacing my Hi-8 camcorder with something more up to date for the impending arrival of my son.
    Have been looking at 2 fromats, HDD or Mini DV. Sony DCR - SR190E - HDD (due out in a few weeks) or another equally specced Mini DV cam around the same price (500).
    I will be using it mainly for the baby, and subsequent holidays, family days out etc, plus I will want to do some editing of the product before burning onto DVD
    I am, by no means overly competent, but have a good idea and want what is going to give the best picture, have good features, be easy to use and be somewhat future proof (ie I don't want to change it in a couple of years - although that seems inevitable these days).

    Any advice/views would be happily received.

    Forgot to say that I like the idea of HDD (no tapes to carry around) but this won't be a deciding factor if Mini DV is the best format.

    Also any suggestions as to what models, other than the 190E, to look at, would be a great help.
