Yes I know there is a thread HDV vs DV. but I am in the throws of contemplating getting a new camera which will cost a lot of money. Before it is said about the quality of camcorders are really good, yes I know however after swinging an entry level camera around for a while the "little " camcorder I have really doesn't cut the grade. I was thinking of getting a DVCAM camera instead of a solid state 1080p camera.
I am considering this one for use over a couple of years.. Sony DSR-PD175P Pro DVCAM Camcorder - Jessops - Camcorders
Is this a silly move of should I keep saving to get a full solid state camera??
