Under £200

I'm looking to replace my 5 year old Panasonic DV camcorder. I use it a lot and have produced around 22 hours of "Kids on DVD" (edited from around 70 hours of tape) in those 5 years.

The camcorder is fine, but it's just looking a bit weary and chunky when compared to the new ones on offer. I'v been having a look around and cam get a few models for under £200 now the Canon MV700i for £199 from Jessops and several other entry level models from internet retails and Ebay.

All I need is a point and shoot Mini-DV camcorder with a small zoom, low motor noise and decent quality recording. I've got DV-In enabled on my existing camera so I'll use that for writing back to tape.

Does anyone have any good or bad things to say about the entry models which might steer me one way or t'other?

Thanks in advance
