Would like to buy a small video camera, don't know much about them. How they work etc. Memory and all that. Gonna go on a hunt and would like something compact but good for the money. Also do the family tapeing.. Thanks Kevin

best advise I can give you is go down to your local best buy, or anyother electric outlet and try to find someone to help you. Go someplace that has a lot on display that you can finger and see what you like.

I have a little Sony Hi-8, wish it was digital...I've had it for about 8-10 yrs.....hardly ever use it nowadays....I do need to get a new battery for it. It takes good video, I highly recommend a good tripod to cut out the shakes especially taping a hunt. I think wallyworld sells this camera new for less than 400 bucks, but not sure on price...

Look at video cams from major optic giants...such as Canon, Nikon, Olympus, and Kodak.... although not necessarily in that order. These guys have been making photographic equipment forever and know good glass.

My experience with Best Buy (worst experience) and other electronic outlets have been mixed and that's being kind. A ton of web sites can give you a ton of knowledge if your willing to do the research. Also the best bargain/purchase can be made over the internet.

Crappie, I will video tape your hunt! After I'm done!!:D I just bought a new camera,a Hi 8 Handy Cam (Sony) I really like the picture and valume but not that happy with the zoom, it gets pretty shakey, the best thing about it is it has a Night Shot switch and I can video in total darkness! That is nice! I think it was under $400.00 and is very small...

Look at b and h photo/video. They are out of New York but have the best prices and I have bought for myself and school and got great deals. Sony is the best. The school has a DCR-HC90 and works great for halftime night performances. (Low light.) Bogan has some great tripods for less than $200 that work great. I got all of our stuff for under a $1000. Email me if you want more info.
