We're after a video camera. We had one years ago whih broke and we never bothered to replace but I'm being put under unrelenting pressure now to replace it (from the kids). I wasnt that keen to be honest as it's not something we ever used much and never missed. Can't remember what our old one was but it was very basic and I do recall you had to put coal in the back and wait for it to build up a head of steam before you could use it
I've had a look at some in catalogues and on line and to be honest I cant make head or tail of all the techno gobblidy gook thatgoes with them.
So - youre help required please...
Has to be something the kids can use easily
Would be good if stuff from it can be easily loaded onto the pc
kids want to make little short films with it so easy follow editing stuff would be good
I might want to take it out on the bike when doing trips etc so need sto be fairly robust
Whats with these new fangled hard disc ones? no tapes, just record to hardddrive - any good, are these the way to go?
Has to have decent battery life
Would rather it didnt have tapes so a dvd/cd or hard drive one.....
Above all else easy to use and one that the technology wont be outdated as soon as I buy it
Any help appreciated
