I have been wanting a video camera for a while now. Now that I have Nicholas, I want one even more. So, I decided a month or so ago that I would put my Christmas money toward getting a video camera. Now I have the money put up so I won't spend it and I have no idea which camera I'm wanting. And I really don't have it narrowed down to any particular cameras.

I need your opinions. I'm only looking to spend around 200 bucks on one. And I'm thinking the miniDV is the way to go. Other than that, I have no idea.

So. Any suggestions? I got on bestbuy.com and found a samsung and a jvc that were only 199.99 each. But ....? I dunno.

Maybe I'll scratch the minidv thing and pay a bit more for the dvd camcorders. I really don't know. ...

I have no clue about that stuff either. My mom got one of the mini dvd camcorders and the cds for it are a bit pricey. The camcorder we have has built in hard drive so you just upload the video to the computer and burn dvds. No matter what it's worth having a camcorder to catch all the memories :D
Good luck with that!

i have a mini dv cam, and it's just as easy to use. The DVD's can go right in a player which is the advantage. With the tapes if you want to make a movie you have to be able to hook it to a pc with FIREWIRE.
SO direct to DVD, use the DVD, but you go through DVD's
MINI DV - tapes, easier to edit, but requires lil extra hardware and work.

Definitely google reviews for camcorders or read them at CNET before buying.
