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.
