I have a budget of £300 - £400 but it would be nice to see some change (my new vista is screaming for a gig more ram )
I know I want these features:
I don't know if I need these?
Optical image stabilistion ( I will be using the cam as handheld for various things, but have a tripod already too)
But I know I dont need these:
I had my heart set on perhaps the panasonic nv-gs300 but can't find it anywhere (discontinued) not even ebay.
I don't mind second had at all!
It's a real minefield out there, I try to keep up to date with the latest technology but even this has eluded me, so much choice!
I want something that's gonna help my creative side with some creative film-making not just pointing and shooting family birthday parties etc I wanna make some short but creative films.
Any help from the more experienced than I guys ?
EDIT: I'm not one for high street retailers but comet do have a special price on a sony dcr-hc39e from £359 to £250 because of a damaged box, Any good?(tho im not a fan of sony) and also I've found a panasonic nv-gs200 for £200 again another potential?
