View Full Version : Buying a cheap camcorder for transfer

Hi, currently I'm using DVX100b. Now I wanna buy a cheaper camcorder just to transfer the tape over to my pc.

Any recommendation for a good tape playback or lasting videohead mechanism ?
Any brands ?

How much are you willing to spend?

Anything will do. MiniDV camcorders start at, what?, $250 now? Canon/Panasonic, they all have good options.

Or your local Video/Computer/Electronics store might even have a super special, or open box for under $200...

I want the lowest possible price... Currently surveying in my area, there are some sony camera's selling at USD 200. THe HCR26E if I'm not mistaken.

But just wanna get the best value for the price.

So do u guys have any experience of a better lasting machine ?
