Hi, Please could you guys help me with this situation that I've got myself into. Well, it all started 2 weeks ago when I was a t a friends house and we were doing some video work and my Sony DCR-TRV950, went missing. We searched high and low, but the camera had gone without a trace. We came to the conclusion that we left it in a nearby town. In the week following I rang the insurance company to which I was told that they didn't cover loss!!!! I was fuming. I'd just lost a £1600 camcorder and they wouldn't pay up, plus I don't have the money to go out and buy a prosumer camera at the moment. I told my parents later on about this who were sympathetic, and later on my dad told me that he had several hundred pounds worth of Nectar points which I could use to purchase a new camera with. I was ecstatic, until I realised that the cameras on offer were nowhere near as good as my DCR-TRV950, and that out of all the stores that Nectar points can be used at, Argos is the only store which stocks camcorders. So, as I essentially need a camcorder, I thoroughly scanned the Argos catalogue and website for decent cameras and this is the list I've come up with and just don't know if these cameras are any good, as I need a camera with DV in/out (about 3/4 have out only!!), must be miniDV yet I'm not sure if Digital8 is worth it, MUST be ablr to take decent video!! So heres the list I've narrowed down to: JVC GR-D290 JVC GR-DF470 Canon MV850i Sony DCR-HC22 Sony DCR-HC39 I'm not sure on this one as it does not have DV in, but I have a feeling it is the best quality and will just have to live with DV out only!! Sony DCR-TRV480 Again, I'm not sure about this camera as it is Digital8, is this worth going for? Please, help me I need to find the best camcorder possible as I have been doing a lot of video work lately (some for money) so need all the quality I can get. The rest of the Argos cameras can be found here. Thanks so much for any input on my situation, this time I guess I'll get the camera insured!!!
