Thanks for this deal - brilliant price - just ordered 2 lots.

Unless anyone knows of a DVD or HDD camcorder that records in AVI MiniDV will continue to be the format for me! Perhaps Blu-ray or HDDVD camcorders will be the answer?
Glad to know that you saved Graham :)

Thanks to Kommunist for the following info which will be useful in this thread :thumbsup:

In short, there are several formats you can use in digital camcorder:

DV tape - often confused with MiniDV but in reality is different (bigger tape). Professional format.
MiniDV tape - most digital camcorders are using this type of tapes.
Digital8 tape - Sony proprietary format, which is still on market but sort of dying.
MicroMV tape - yet another Sony invention that never took off. Using MPEG2 as recording format, so it is difficult to edit.
DVD disks - using MPEG2 as a format, diificult to edit but it is the "everyone must get it even if it is rubbish" sort of thing.
HDD (hard drive based) - normally using MPEG2 or even worse MPEG4 for encoding.
Memory card-based (SD, CF, etc) - these are normally produce rubbish picture due to plastic cheapo optics and high compression. Sort of camera in mobile phone really.

In short, if you want to edit your video then make DVD or whatever, go for MiniDV (less compression, easier editing and such). If you want to immediately show to everyone your video without editing, then go for DVD-based. IMHO. :)
Thanks for the info Edi. On paper the DVD & HDD look attractive, are getting cheaper all the time and seem to be taking over from MiniDV.

You confirm my worst fears that the DVD & HDD camcorders are not viable for serious movie makers. Lets hope they continue to make MiniDV camcorders.

the future for us small film makers is HDD, the new Sony camera has that option, plus its the new CMOS system as opposed to the 3CCD systems currently in use....we currently shoot using a Sony VX2100 and a Canon Xl2s, both 3CCD cams using mini dv...the other option we use is recording direct to our laptops using firewire and a piece of software called DV Rack from a firm called Serious Magic

if you are interested in future case you run a wedding or corporate video business....this is the camera to have....options include Sonys own 60Gb hard drive.....brill piece of if I could just get someone to buy my VX2100 and scrape up the £5k to buy all the add ons as well.....
Aren't we supposed to be boycotting Sony?
