I'm about to buy my first MiniDV Camcorder. I don't want to spend too much. Around £300 maybe. What brands/models should I look at, and which ones should I avoid. I realise that I won't get the best camcorder in the world for around £300, but I still hope that some of you experts can give me a bit of advice. One final thing. I'm going on holiday in October, and will stop over in Qatar for a few hours. Is it generally cheaper to buy camcorders in the Gulf? Hope you can help me a bit, as I don't really know anything about camcorders.
