Hi guys! :D

Need abit of help here! :hmz:

Can anybody give advice on which is the better video camera to go for? :hmz:

They are both very similar in price, but one is a HD camera and the other has a mammoth 80gig onboard hard drive!

Put me out of my misery please! :pray:

What would you opt for? :huh:

HDR-CX110- 1031402 ( HD camera)

&

DCR- 568- 1032251 (has a 80 gig hard drive)

Thanks in advance! :thumbs_up:

Hey bud,

I would not go for the Sony, but that is a personal preference.
If you take a shot from left to right, most of them have a short lapse in adjusting their focus.
it got better as the years gone by, but it is still there and I do not like that.
For the rest. No idea. :thumbs_up:

I would have a look at Canon or Panasonic, but like I said. I is a personal preference and not based on a technical preference. :thumbs_up:

Hi Gunner,
:hmz: Take into consideration other brands. I bought a HD Sony last year and found colour was lousy. Parked it in my draw and continue using my old Hitachi.

Try any cam before buying and check on focus speed and quality of colour.

I agree on the Sony Andy, but I am not to sure about the Hitachi though. They are only good in building- and demolition equipment. :lol: :lol:

Hi Gunner
I have had a Sony for many years, two in actual fact as my first was stolen and replaced with a newer model at 2/3 rds of the price of the first. Both of these used tape. I have now bought a Panasonic Full HD to use as my main video camera and it uses a SD Ram card. My first concern was the amount of recoding that would fit on even a 16Gb card but it is not a problem due to it using a Panasonic version of MPeg4. The resolution is 1960 x something which gives excellent quality. It also looks similar to the type used by Broadcasters and sits on my shoulder for much greater stability than a hand held.

Hope this helps.

Gunner,
another great solution you have is to get a Nikon or Canon digital camera with HD video. I use the video on my Nikon D90 and it's fantastic. :thumbs_up:
