Need to buy a camcorder ASAP

Found 10th Jan 2007
Any ideas where I can get a good deal on a camcorder? Looking for something basic. (It's for an older/wiser user so nothing to swish) Under £150. Easy to use. Light weight. Mainly for day time use. :thinking: VCR at the moment - I would like to buy retail and i'm in the Nottingham area.


PC World have a few mini DV camcorders for £150 or there abouts and you should be able to pick up front store, don't forget quidco.


Yup that would be perfect, if he is not sure what mini-dv is, it's just a smaller kind of VHS tape. You can even get VHS size adapters so you can just slot a mini-dv tape in the vhs cassette and play it in your VCR as normal. Or the easier option would be to just plug your camcorder in your tv and watch it from there.

That looks really good - cheers - i'll pop to Jessops tonight! x:-D

I don't think you can get it for that price in store though - it's cheaper online using the code. Do they price match their own web deals ??

Also check this JVC camcorder from Jessops


BTW, as emma says, you cant get this price in Jessops in-store

Okay - I have had a look at the camcorders and decided which to get but now my parents want to take photos as well!! So in addition to the original needs - I now want a camcorder that can take photos. Either to the tape or to a seperate memory card. Obviously willing to up my budget....Any ideas!!!

Have Jessops ended their price matching minus 10% offer???

..similar to me. i too was looking for a camcorder but didnt know which ones are good. this minidv samsung camcorder does seem fairly priced but does anyone know after making a movies, how to copy it onto the pc or laptop ? as the camcorder dont have a usb connection...cheers all
