  1. Hey gang:

    I would like some info on camcorders. I have a gift certificate from best buy for $350.00. Can't get anything photo wise, so I was thinking about a camcorder. I do not know anything about them. Any advice for purchasing one at this aomnt or of a wee bit more? Though it might be fun to learn how to do movies on my imac.
    Thanks,
    Gil

    I have an older Sony mini-DV, and for what it is, I like it. It's not a 3 chip camera, but I like the format. I'm not a fan of Best Buy (had trouble with them last year) so whatever you get, consider the purchase final.

    I too have been thinking about a camcorder but I know more about the dark side of the moon than I do of them. Is there an educational type website that explains what the different formats are?
