DVD vs Mini-DV
by PWFleming - 12/27/03 12:05 PM
Please help. My wife and I are about to have our first child, and I would like to buy a camcorder in the very near future to film home movies. I have been looking hard at the Sony DVD 100, but it seems to have very mixed reviews... of course, there doesn't seem to be a standout "best" camera either.
My reasons for wanting the DVD camera are that I told that it is very easy to film a video, make a movie, and then copy it to DVDs to watch at home or send to the grandparents. I am also told I can use the camera to copy old VHS movies to DVDs as well.
Please advise if you think this is the right way to go, or if I would be better off with something like the Sony DCR-TRV80, 33, or 22.
