    My 11 year old son is really getting into making little movies. Has anyone got an old camcorder sitting in a cupboard they would like to sell? Ideally hard drive or memory card based, and at least 720p. He's got a budget of £40 max - ideally it would be less. Thanks.

    Someone must have an old bit of tech that needs a new home!

    Hi, I have an old Canon MV900 Camcorder in very good condition...not HD, but a very versatile little unit. Uses mini Dv tapes...let me know if it is of any interest.

    Thanks for the offer but I would really like to get HD and solid state recording if possible. He's used to shooting on my iPhone 6s....

    I've got a Panasonic HDC-SD9 that's been boxed up and ready to sell for a while. It's in fantastic condition and only used a handful of times. I bought it to video our first child, but preferred taking stills. It has all the things that came with it, some of which aren't opened.

    It's 1080p and uses an SD card (the main reasons I bought it myself). It does a really good job and also works really well in low light.

    Let me know if you're interested or have any questions about it.

    Kind regards.
    Damian.

    After just doing a quick check elsewhere, these seem to sell for between 50 and 60. I see your son's budget is £40 though. If you could add a little bit to help contribute to postage, then I'd be OK with that.

    Cheers
    Damian.
