I know this gets asked a lot... but recommend me a cam! I'm looking for something that takes miniDV tapes, and will allow an external mic. Not looking for a Hi Def camera, but decent low light performance is quite important. Budget I'm not sure about, but I guess around the £400 mark shouldn't be too much of a problem. A quick look around here shows me that the Rode Video Mic is highly thought of, so that's already on the list. Camera discussions now seem to centre around HDD and HD which is not what I want. It's been so long since I last looked at video cameras, I'm feeling like I've been left behind a bit! Any help would be greatly appreciated.
