I would recommend the miniDV. My camcorder cost in the range that you are looking for and has the smae exact features as one sony harddrive camcorder but for almost half the cost. The reviews and research that I did before purchasing the camera told me that the DVD format is not at as high of a quality as the miniDV or harddrive. Why? I dont know something about the way the video is recorded to the DVD. If I am wrong please correct me, but this is my opinion.
