    Hi

    I want to buy a camcorder but can only afford a second hand one from e-bay.

    I have no experience and the only recommendation I have had is from my brother-in-law who confesses he knows nothing but used a Sony TRV408E until it went fuzzy around the edges.

    there looks to be a wide choice on e-bay for under 100 quid; but which is dead technology, which is old but still useable and which would be a real bargain?

    8mm, Hi8, digital 8 I don't know what any of this means as for makes and models, help!!!

    I have 2 days to buy if I am to get it posted out in time for camping trip, so any help would be appreciated.

    I am sure there will be many more questions but for now thanks for looking and please don't hesitate to offer an opinion.
