I have decided to buy a miniDV cam and narrowed it down to Sony, but was confused between DCR PC 105 and 109. 109 although newer than 105 has been downgraded, or so it appears from the research that I have done on it. The docking station is "the highlight" for 109. The downgrading of CCD and pixel count and the LCD screen resolution being halved (109 has half that of 105) to get a docking station accomodated for the same price almost. Is it worth it????? Also there is no built in flash in 109. From what I read from various sources (and there are not many comparing these two models), the opinion is divided about these two cams. Some go in for 109 just because that is newer technology while others say 105 is better. So am confused in 2004. Please help and enlighten me!! Also, I noticed that Sony is coming out with newer models that are although smaller in size but the specs are lower than the previous generation ones. Talk about evolution!!!!!!!
