hey everyone, im in the market for a video camera.  i'll be using it mostly for home movies and the occasional tradeshow.  portability is a major factor, as is price.  i'd like to keep it under $400 bucks.

so, what do ya'll reccomend?

I see that nobody helped out the poor soul with the original question, but I too am looking at getting one.  I need to find one for my 11 year old niece.  I know nothing about digital video cameras so would like any help you can give.

Well I hate to offer this advise but......go out the day after T-Day.  I know there will be crap loads of people out...and well I will be one of them.....but you won't find any better deal.  As far as what to buy...that is a big ????  I would say something nice that is easy to use with a good sized lcd display but not too expensive because well....things get dropped.....

Mini DV is a must- the quality is wonderful.

Next- DO YOU HOMEWORK.... Cnet is great for reviews.

Pick what types of features you want....I am on my third Mini DV and I picked up the Canon Elura 100 since I wanted analogue to video- so I could convert my old vcr recordings to digital video then put them on my computer and burn them to DVD's.  And awesome feature-

And it has a spotlight - kinda nice.

So far the video quality of hard drive cameras seems to be pretty poor and direct to DVD cameras seem to have all kinds of problems...
