    Jeez, this is so confusing!

    Just when I'd settled on the fact that I was going to buy a JVC GR-DVP7, I find a whole load of opions (on another BBS) from some people with JVCs saying that if they were buying again they'd get a Sony PC120.

    Size is very important, but I'd not realised that the Sony isn't much bigger than the JVC (~1cm wider and deeper, but 1cm shorter too). So it's certainly small enough.

    Judging by the prices I've found, the Sony's going to come in at about £100 more than the JVC, but it seems that the low-light handling, sound quality and feature set will be loads better. So should I splash out the extra cash and go for the Sony, or is the JVC still going to be the better bet?

    Bear in mind that I don't care at all about the still-shot capability of either camera, as this is a feature I won't be using at all.

    Any input gratefully appreciated - especially if you've tried/owned both cams!

    Thanks.

    I've decided now, see my reply to the other thread I started! But you're right - the Sony's clearly the best.
