Help on buying a cool but cheap camcorder...?

Postby Tonespace » Tue Apr 03, 2007 8:11 pm

Hi all.
I use Arkaos with a video input...but I don't yet have my own camcorder. Any ideas on what to buy if you're on a tight budget?
Regards

I have a Sony DCR-PC100E, that is now 5 years old and still really nice compared to other singlechip DV-cams. You should be able to get one used really cheap today... This is a realy sturdy little camera with fine Zeiss optics and have served me well for many years now, bought a new battery and the AC adapter gave up, but the new one was half the size :)
