      I found this site very helpful.

      I am from Philippines and I am planning to buy a videocam next month and my budget is $1000. Pls. give me some advise which cam brand and model is the best pick. I heard that MiniDV has better quality.
      Is it better than a 3CCD? Or is there a MiniDV with 3 CCD which has more storage capacity that cost around $1000?
      Is the HDD and DVD of Sony has the same quality as MiniDV?

      I searched the sites of Sony, Panasonic, and Canon, and it seems I’m confused now.

      Awaiting for your reply. Thank you.

      Thanks a lot Hank for your prompt reply. I really appreciate it.

      I found a 3CCD Videocam with built-in flash light and with a microphone jack and it cost $999.95 only. It’s the Panasonic Model PV-GS500.(

      What can you advise to me?

      Anyone out there who already have this Panasonic PV-GS500? Pls. let me know the pros and cons. Thanks.

      Manila, Philippines
