my friedn is quite into making his own movies (see www.diabolofosho.co.uk), he uses a Mustek DV 5000 for his. it's small concealable, and the quality's prettygood. all the work on the site was done with that camera. have look.

i have a mini DV cam by sharp. it's awesome. i love it. and it's compact. very very nice, any sharp camera taht isn't really cheap is good, and they're mostly decntly priced. if all else fails, you can just go to www.refurbdepot.com

good stuff

your lucky im in video productions. First off I need a budget. How much ya willing to spend?

Also some things to considere are how many ccd's the camera has. 1 or 3. What this means is that when a camera recieves light from a object it is converted to digitsl image with ccd's. Now with cheaper cameras they have 1 ccd which is divided in 3 parts. One for red, greem and blue. The picture comes out grainy, not sharp and fairly poorer quality. Now with a 3 ccd camera you got one for each coclor spectrum so the image is ridiculously awsome. On Ebay you can get a 3 ccd camera for 500-600.

And no matter what a 3 ccd camera will have a far superior picture to a one ccd camera no matter what other variables exist.

oh i learned this in science, get one wiht an optical zoom, not digital. all that digital does it blows up some of the pixles so that it looks closer. optical actually zooms in like a weak telescope.

i'm going to recommend the Canon ZR 80.

Canon Cameras are the best imo. I have a Powershot G series digi cam and i love it, picture is un beatable. That ZR80 has VERY high Optical zoom and it has Canon's Digital Processing, DIGI!C Chip. They also are the only ones to have MECHANICAL Shot steady. All others have Digital Shot steady, it is patented by Canon.

So.. Get something CANON. The Optura Line of Camcorders are smaller and quite a bit better (but more).

The grainyness will only go away if you have 3ccd or one ccd with higher definition. If not the picture will still be grainy.
