Thread: Which digital video camera?

    Default Which digital video camera?

    Hi, I'm looking to buy a digital video camera but nothing amazing - just something for me and my friends to muck about with over the summer. I dont want to spent 200 on a decent one if we might break it anyway.

    what is a budget muck-around digital camcorder for 100 or under? or are they really not worth the money?

    Any help or recommendations would be much appreciated!!

    Make sure it is DV and records to a miniDV tape.

    Check e bay for s/h or discontued stuff. I was looking today and there was panasonic ds60 going for 160 but it now. It was my first camera and it got me going and the video still looks fine to me.

    I must have a look in the 'muck around' section of Jessops or Curry's the next time I'm in there, to see if they have any bargains.

    Or perhaps it might be better spending your 100 on some beer, pizza and a trip to the local video store and check out 'the top shelf' section.

    As Mark suggests, the only good camera to fit that budget would be an old/discontinued/second-hand one, but of good quality.
    Not some "wonder" today that shoots QCIF res MPEG-4 or something.
    So eBay is your friend.
    Good luck!
