    I'm going to be purchasing a camcorder soon and I'm torn between the Canon Hi8 ES8400V and the Sony digital TVR240. The Canon I can get for $300 and the Sony for $500 (until 1/18/03).

    And my question... is digital worth an extra $200?

    If you are going to edit your videos on your computer, you should definitely get the Digital. Also, the picture quality is of course better.
