hello, everyone!

does anyone have information regarding video cameras? i tried some other forums and didn't have any luck so i thought i'd see if any HT folks had some input.

i'm shopping around for a decent mini dv video camera (as i heard dvd video cameras are still not up to par). i really don't know where to start or what to look for.

i'm looking to spend up to $700.

any input is appreciated!

thanks in advance!
