I've discovered I have enough points saved up on my visa card to redeem them for one of the following three MiniDV cameras. They are just cheap, low end models. Canon MV940: http://www.canon.com.au/products/visual/cameras/cameras_video/mv940.html Sony DCRHC26: http://www.sony.com.au/dis/catalog/product.jsp?categoryId=22123 Samsung VPD-365Wi: http://www.samsung.com/au/products/camcorder/digitalcamcorder/vp_d365wi.asp I'm trying to decide which one to get.. they are all fairly simular in specs. I'm a fan of Sony's Handycam's, so it's up there for me at the moment, but offers the smallest optical zoom lens. (20x). the Canon has 25x, the samsung has 33x. The canon has nicer specs, I reckon.. with a slightly larger LCD screen, better focal length, but is slightly heavier than the Sony. The Samsung might have the nice zoom, but only does DV out (not in), and has vague specifications on their site. The sony and canon do DV in/out. The canon has a wireless remote too. The sony accepts 25mm filters, the canon does not, the canon has a built in lens cover, unsure about the sony. The sony has spot focus and metering, 24 steps of exposure controls, etc. The canon has whole area/centre weighted average exposure metering, 11steps of exposure compensation, etc. if any1 has any experience or advice with any of these models, please share your thoughts! The Sony seems to have more accessories, etc, etc. hrmmm. Samsung, i need convincing more.
