I need a new camcorder
« on: December 06, 2007, 06:25:24 AM »

Well the one we have decided to croak. The little tape holder thingy decided to stop working. Me being the technician type decided to try and fix it (out of warranty so what the *fudge*). There are like a million of those little screws in the thing and I still couldn't get to the part I needed to. Decided to put it back together and looked at all those little screws siting on the table. They were all different sizes, some had different threads, and they were either black or silver in color. I looked at my wife, she looked at me, rolled her eyes and gave me a coupon for Circuit City.

I managed to put it back together (only 2 screws left over) and it will still take pictures. Problem is the tape compartment is permanently open and will not close. So today we will be going to said Circuit City and promptly buy a low to mid range priced MiniDV camcorder

MiniDV for sure?  I hear the Sony 30gig hard drive is a nice unit.

Yea because I have about 10 of those little tapes that I have been putting off backing up to a DVD.

Maybe I should see if my parent's camcorder is a MiniDV.

My wife also rolls her eyes when I start going all "screws on the table".

Never give up I say.

 LOL  I considered that.  I don't carry the same disdain, but I'm not as Leonard as he either. I know he has good reasons, I just have a hard time committing enough interest to keep up.

There are several Sony items I wouldn't buy PS3, Blow-Ray, etc.  But on the whole I've been fairly satisfied with their stuff.

Bought the Cybershot 5.1 megapixel camera a few years ago, and love it.

Don't know if this is a concern.  With the hard drive cams, once it is full, that is it.  Unless one is organized enough to download the stuff from the hard drive to the puter on a regular basis. Smiley
