    What are the advantages of mini DV over a Hi8 camera? I already have a good digital stills camera.

    Yo Dood, where's my camera?
    DV gives better quality pictures, BUT, you would be pushed to notice when viewed on a "normal" T.V. You get digital still pics from DV direct from the camera. DV costs a whole lot more, the tapes are shorter and dearer, but the camcorders are smaller. Really depends on how much you are going to use it , if it is just for fun, then Hi8 is OK, if you want to be an artist, and have the budget, go with DV.
