Hi, Although very technical I have no experience of miniDV camcorders. I used to have an anlogue Canon, but that had so much tape motor noise I don't want another Canon. I have about £500 to spend and am looking for something that will be used in well lit indoor rooms. Any recommendations ? I was looking at Panasonic (cos I like there other stuff!) NVG233B JVC GR-d73 Sony - something - don't know any of there models ! Can you get extra lights (flash type thing ?) for camcorders ? Any help will be much appreciated !
