In peoples opinion is this more than enough. I am looking for a MiniDV camcorder and the ones I have been looking at have 10, having not owned one before will 10x optical be sufficient. Not bothered about digital and have been looking at the Sony DCRPC120, anybody with one comment on the quality etc of the picture. Also looking on the site there have been problems with this machine and Firewire cards. Is there anyway of making sure this will work with a DELL 8100 laptop before I buy the camera (short of taking it into the shop). In peoples opion in the PC120 worth the pennies or are there better alternatives for the same price. Thanks.
