I bought the Sony and was used a few times and put on the shelf. The limited 20 min time is too little for most events. Stay with tape camcorders. The cost of disks is much higher and what I do is us RW disks and edit and move to standard DVD format.
I currently have a Samsung mini-DV camcorder. My husband is convinced we need a DVD camcorder. My head is spinning after an afternoon trying to figure out what to buy. I wasn't really happy with my Samsung, but have stuck it out anyway.
I want to play the DVD's directly in to my DVD player and in my computer (I have a DVD drive) and I want something that will have a good quality video. I'm not out to spend $1000. Most importantly I don't want something that will need to be replaced in a year or two. I want a good camcorder.
Anyone? I have heard that Sony is crap. lol Canon only has 2 to choose from. Pansonic, seems cheap. I just don't know.
Any advice, would be appreciated.
