I have the 8mm tape video camera. It's good, but it's fairly heavy and the bag that holds it is quite big. And considering they make them much smaller, I'd like to get a Mini-DV video camera. What do people think of them? Could you also please state the manufactuer (Sony, Panasonic, etc) model #, and around how much it cost you? Thanks guys. I'm trying to find a pretty good one before my trip to Florida.
