Have decided that getting a MiniDV camcorder could be quite useful for holidays/events etc but have no idea what kind of things to look for in one. Been looking on pricerunner.com to compare prices and see what kind of camcorders are available but I'm stuck now on what I should be looking for. Is there much of a difference between mini DV cams and digital8 ones? Whats the pros and cons of each? I had been looking at the Panasonic NV-GS11, JVC GR-D23 But I would really appreciate some views from people who know a bit more about them than me, what do you recommend and what accesories should I look into buying? Thanks if you can offer some helpful suggestions.
