where do you live?

In Canada, you can get a VHS camcorder for as low as $350.

DVD camcorders (recommended) are about $600 to start.

Hard drive camcorders are about $1000 to start.

For brand names, i recommend Canon or Sony.

MiniDV is like videocasette, its old technology, and its cheap....

For best quality, i recommend DVD. Also, DVD's are getting cheap...100 DVD+R's for about $20...

That's MiniDV, AKA videocasette. Its okay, but old technology.


Check this out:
Canon, 200X zoom, records on DVD-R or RW, good price.
