I currently have an older Canon ZR75 camcorder which uses mini tapes, which I am very comfortable using ie capturing to my PC with PPro 2.0. I have been looking at newer cameras that are advertised in the Sunday paper for sale at local dealers, and they indicate that these cameras record to either a self contained harddrive, disks, or cards. My question is do they still make cameras that record to tapes like my present camera, or are they a thing of the past. If so can you direct me to an appropriate site to view and evaluate the cameras. Many thanks for your time.
