    Hi

    I'm looking to buy my first camcorder and considering the new Sony DCR-PC8. Apart from general use, I do a lot of cycling and would like to use this in conjunction with a minature 'helmet cam'.

    Has anyone here used this and if so, could you answer the following for me please:

    - Does it have analog inputs?
    - Is it possible to use it (as a recording device) without having to open the LCD screen?
    - Does it have DV in and is this enabled on the UK version?


    Many thanks for any advice you can give!

    AfroKen

    Get yourself a copy of this month's What Camcorder magazine - the PC8 is reviewed therein.

    Matt.

    RES999,
    Search with www.google.com, or why not buy the magazine suggested by Matt F?

    I just did the google and 28 pages there... admittedly translating helps but quite a few opinions....
    Can't disagree with finding out before you buy:cool:
