I'd go for the SD card one (No.1) . It will be easier to store your movies, I have one of the others (mini DV) and it takes time to record and keep what I record.

PS. It is obviously easier to carry extra SD cards than tapes :)

Yeh i was thinking that, I was wondering which one had better quality as well? Do you know?
Also im a complete newbie to camcorders so if i did go for the mini dv one, how would i get them onto DVD's? Im confused. Obviously if i got the sd one i could do it all easy on my pc but the whole mini dv thing is confusing me.
Thanks for the help. Rep added.

The Praktica one is HD, while the Canon is standard, so the first one again.

Too much time (and cables) with the mini DV.


I have ruined so many DVDs trying to burn movies with my PC, I just use a DVD recorder, much easier and less time consuming. With this method, if you can use a DVD, then you cannot go wrong. Never had a ruined DVD disc since.

mini dv one looks much better as 35x zoom is great. 5x is rubbish.

also cam 2 has image stabilisation which is essential unless on a tripod (imho of course).

mini dv holds 60 mins per tape and they are very small. easy to transfer to pc too. Check you have a firewire port on your pc

2gb sd card wouldn't hold much I believe.

Thats great thanks so much, i did think that when i saw it was HD but it confused me because the other one has a higher normal price by £30.00 i think it was so i thought maybe that one was better. Thanks again. I tried to rep you but need to spread some around 1st. Thanks again.

then again the praktica is HD (5mp) as opposed to 0.8 on the canon.

canon is a brilliant SD camcorder (up to 1000x digital zoom)

praktica is a low budget HD cam.

hard to compare the two really

Thanks, im so confused but at least i know there is good reason to be confused, lol.
Well in all honest which one would u go for? I probably wont even use it much at all thats why im not getting an expensive one, but i'd just like one if an occasion ever came up.
When i have children or something i will probably upgrade it and get a decent one but at the moment that would be a waste of money to me.
Thanks.
