    Hi.
    I understand that you're on a very tight budget but I honestly advise you not to buy that Mustek thingy. It's just a gadget that can record video, but you won't be happy with the quality. At all. Save some more and get a MiniDV camcorder. Any model. It will be much better.

    i managed to suck out a budget of LM200 wich is APX 315.
    with that budget what do you suggest i get. this will be my 1st digital camera and i am not looking for somethin with super excelent quality. im just looking for a good camera. wich will last and good quality for its price.

    First of all, the megapixel rating means nothing when it comes to video - that's just stills. All standard PAL camcorders (should) record at 720x576 resolution.

    Secondly, get a miniDV tape based camcorder. They are far superior.

    The best advice I can give is - Do plenty of forum reading before you buy anything! In the past I have made the mistake of buying a video camera without fully understanding EXACTLY what I will be doing with it for instance, did I need an outboard microphone?, did I need widescreen?, was I to be making home movies or amateur films?

    It's like anything you buy, ask the question - what do I need it to do? - the answer is your minimum specification.

    Get it wrong and you'll spend lots of money!
