I want to buy my first Camcorder and i'm confused. i need a simle camera at about 500$. no special requirements. i dont need a super-high quality of films, just for family shootage.
Iheard about the miniDV format, which intorduces the best quality but is complicated to convert the file to a watchable DVD on the TV (or connect to a PC). On the other hand i know the flash cameras are gaining poularity because the simplicity, although i've head that the quality is not as good as mini-DV.I don't know how bad is it, or is it noticeable for home-footage.
Ialso heard about camcoders with mini-DVDR, and might consider this type too.
I'm mainly thinking about 2 models: SONY DCRHC51E (miniDV) or CANON FSA100 (flash)
Can anyone reccomend me which technology is better for my needs?
