I'm a newbie to DV and I'm on the hunt for a new, high quality Mini DV camcorder. Any and all recommendations would really help me out! I'd love to buy something in the price range of the Sony VX2000 or Canon GL2 but my current budget is quite a bit lower than that. I guess I'm looking for the best camcorder priced below these. Any suggestions?
Well I actually kind of wanted to stay away from Sony simply because they use their own memory cards etc. I'm looking really heavy at the Panasonic 952 as well as other brands. I should have mentioned that in my first post I suppose. I will however take a look at the TRV-900 since I have a digital still camera on it's way, I probably would never use the memory card device on the camcorder anyway.
Anyone used the Panasonic DV 952? Or have any other recommendations?
