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

I recommend you take a look at the Sony DCR-SR45.
http://www.amazon.com/Sony-DCR-SR45-Handycam-Camcorder-Optical/dp/B00123UGXK

It's $311 though, and it has 30 GB built-in hard drive and you can also expand the memory with memory stick.

Edit: Have you seen the Flip Mino HD camcorder?

What exactly was the problem Evil? :)
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.

sony DV stuff is pretty good :)
Ta, I'll have a look around. I might just wait till after xmas now and look in the January sales.

Sorry I missed this post, can't have had me glass on :laugh: I did looked at and do like the look of the Flip but it only has 2x digital zoom which put me off.

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
