    Hubby bought me a Toshiba Camileo camcorder for Christmas but I ended up sending it back cause everything had a purple tint. :cry: I've looked and looked for another but it's made me very wary now.
    Do you think I'd get one with a decent picture quality for less than £150? I don't know anything about them to be honest and don't know whether I should look for DV or SD memory? At this rate I'll be getting my xmas pressie after xmas :crosseyed:

    mm.. maybe u'll have to strech ur budget a little

    i've been lookin at digital camcorders myself, and i think the ones with internal hd and SD expansion slot are the best and easier to use

    Dunno, the store tested it, said they found a major fault and gave us the money back.

    I'm not going to let hubby spend any more than I said, I'd rather do without, I'm not expecting to make blockbuster movies or anything it's just for family stuff.

    Ta, I'll have a look around. I might just wait till after xmas now and look in the January sales.
