How much are the DVDs for this? I was looking at getting something similar but have only looked at the HDD ones
#3
Don't like this format BUT the MS Duo is a bit of a saving grace. I'd rather put a few quid in and get a HDD cam as they are much smaller and have longer record and operating times... however, this is still a decent price for what it is.

hd hdd all the way for me but this is an awesome deal!!

Can't record movies to MS, just stills AFAIK.

Cold for me - can get HD cameras at this price, or very good quality SD that record to memory card or HDD.

Are they not mini?
#8
Actually i'm not 100% sure.. good point.. I was just judging by looking at the camera itself
#9
dunno about this, camera is a old, and uses DVDs instead of built in HDD :(
#10
Of course there mini dvd,My sister has a panasonic dvd camcorder cost a lot of money but its rubbish and not a long recording time i think its half an hour on best quality which is the only one i would use.

Unless it's a mini dvd...... :thumbsup:

I got Mini DV Tape Sony Camcorder for last 5 years and happy with it. You can get DV tapes on special offers as well. The only thing is missing is you can not take still photos. If I want to buy camcorder again I will go for HDD.

When use Mini DV tapes I always use LP gives me 1 hour 30 Minutes without loosing any picture quality.

If you keep you mini DV tapes safely! Then you can use them for years. Don’t forget to get cleaning tape and use now and then (Camcorder will gives a bleeping warning).

quidco is not 6%..... it's 0.5% for electrical items.

Good price, voted hot :)
#15
Had bad experience with Sony and JVC camcorders.
#16
Cold from me, it seems to be a good price for what it is, but you'd be ill-advised to buy something at this price that cannot do HD.
#17
Cold for me... DVD's days are numbered
#18
Might be a good price, but I bought a Xacti TH1 hi-def flash camcorder for £160 recently, over 3 hours battery life and weighs next to nothing. This is already an obsolete format.
#19
Considering the deals available for HD camcorders using more convenient media than DVD I can’t see any attraction in this. :thinking:
#20
As reiterated above:

* DVD is an ageing format for recording on a camcorder
* HDD are slowly being replaced by flash drives too (no moving parts)
* Standard definition cams can be had with hard drives for this price (or thereabouts)
* The memory stick slot only takes still images

Do yourself a favour and future-proof to a degree and spend a bit more on an HD camcorder. £400 will get you something half-decent and you could spend less if you want and still get a 1080i unit. I recently grabbed a Canon HG20 for £500 (60GB, 1080p, 1/3.2 sensor etc), but most people won't want to shell out that much.

I honestly can't see how this is being voted so hot?!
It's an old - discontinued product by sony, using an old "out of electrical-fashion" technology.

I wouldn't buy it for £150. :thinking:

Don't try and understand why. It's just HUKD and the way it is sometimes. Sheeple and bandwagons :lol:

I still prefer the Mini-DV format

A lot of people still do, but for someone starting out (myself included), it makes sense to go from SD to AVCHD in *most* cases. Mini DV is pretty decent, but I object to the real-time transfer times that tapes incur sadly. Otherwise, some dirt cheap DV recorders out there.
#26
I've had a Sony MiniDV for ages and I'm still amazed by the quality, plus tapes are dirt cheap now too but as silverfox said, the real time transfer is a bind plus I would add the recording length (as with this) is limited to an hour or so whereas SD/ HDD is HUUUUGE!!!!
