    I've been looking at the "lower" range camera's, but I really don't know what to choose. Most of the specs mean nothing to me :dunno:
    Can anyone recommend a lower range camera? I'm leaning towards a Canon MV850i or the JVC GRD250. They're about $600 to $750 AUS.

    It really depends on what you want to use it for. I mean if you want to just have a camera to make home videos, just get a cheap little Mini DV camera. However, if you want more quaily, you'll want a 3 ccd camera. But since you said the specs don't mean anything to you, I'll just wait until you say what you want it for.

    Ah generally I'll just be taking footage of whatever and editing it. Nothing serious, nothing professional. But I still don't want some heap of a camera.

    Thanks for the reply Squally :wavey:

    I've been looking at Ebay just now :eek5:

    They're not overly cheap. Only those ones from overseas are :hs:
