I hope this is the right place to ask this, but I want some opinions from someone much more knowledgable than myself. I'm looking at purchasing a Sony digital camcorder and think I have it narrowed down to two models. I'm looking at the DCR-TRV840 and the DCR-TRV33. The 840 is Digital8 while the 33 is MiniDV. I can get the 840 for $800+$50'ish tax and free shipping. I can get the 33 for $800 no tax and free shipping and free carrying case. The 840 has a higher zoom capability and a 3 1/2" LCD while the 33 has a 2 1/2" LCD. If anyone knows much about these two models or maybe even one that might better suit my needs, please let me know. I'm looking for one with the 1 Megapixel still shot capability and going with the Sony because I definitely want the NightShot. Thanks for any help you can offer.
