I remember selling loads of these when they first came out.

This is a good price :thumbsup:

I was looking to buy one but how does this compare to the JVC GR-D720 Mini DV Camcorder as this is availabel for the same price and with points it will bring it down to about £85.

Does anyone know whether there are significant differences or worthwhile to wait as I am just looking for a basic camcorder but do want to download on to laptop or DVD and do not want it to be out of date next year.

Any help would be appreciated.

Many thanks
Phil

The JVC looks a better spec. But this is Sony...

I've just reserved a JVC GR-D728 from PC World for £119 and the Tesco one looks the same apart from the D728 looks like it has a built in light at the front.

I need mine to transfer mini dv tapes to my laptop for burning to dvd.

I had a Canon mv750i which I got in 2002 for nearly £500 and it was never used regularly. It now displays the dreaded "Remove Tape" message and is stuffed. Well known design fault with Canon digi-cams. Not impressed and won't get another.

The old JVC VHS-C we bought in 1994 was fine right up until we got the Canon some 8 years later. Mind you, most of the rewinding/forwarding from the JVC was done in the cassette adapter and not the camcorder. Heavy use of the camcorder to view mini dv tapes is not recommended apparently because the mechanism is so fragile.

That's what might have done my Canon in. People buy manual mini dv rewinders to negate having to use their camcorders to rewind tapes.

My friend just listed one of these on ebay and I had a chance to have a look at it before he did, it's a very nice camcorder and so small! They really seem to have shrunk in size since we got our first MiniDV cam a few years back, I wouldn't mind one myself if I had the cash. Voted hot.

Thanks for all the useful info. I think I should go in for a HDD camcorder reading all this...
