My Sony camcorder is unfortunately broke (well the viewfinder is). Nowhere seems to fix them locally, and Sony want a minimum of £160 ! I noticed that some of the stores have almost none in stock now, and the one guy said its because you can get just as good video footage with a camera. Any thoughts on this guys ? Id rather just buy a new camera , as we could do with upgrading ours anyway as its quite old anyway. My guess is it wont be as good as a camera, but we don't shoot that much anyway as the kids (NO) are older anyway. My budget is near the lower end ..about £160. Appreciate any views.
