Looking to purchase a video camera and looking for a mid level camera at no more then 500 dollers max. I saw a few 30 gb cameras that seemed prertty nice. Just wondering if anyone on here has some advise as to which way to go with a camera. thanks

do you have to have a HardDrive camera, because you could get a really nice miniDV camera with that budget.

yeah the only prob with the mini dv is the 30 min record time. Just looking to take videos of my kid really.

You can get 90 minutes on a mini-dv. The quality at that setting is fine.

generally I have to change tape before I change battery. Plus you can buy upgraded batteries that last 2+hours
