The only digital camcorder I have had experience with is the Panasonic 3 chip
at the Academy where I taught video production. The cost would be prohibitive
to me as an idividual, $16,000.00. I have used the Casio line of digital
stills and currently have two Minolta Dimage V's that have been very good. But
they are just still cameras. I think when I buy more I will go with the Sony
which uses a standard floppy disk for memory. The Minoltas use a very small
and expensive memory disk. I wish I could help you with the ones that do video
also. I am waiting til that technology becomes more advanced. I am convinced
that there will no longer be "still" and video cameras. They will all do both.
If you are just wanting to place photos in your e-mail most any of the current
digitals would be good. I personally am debating between the Sony and the top
of the line Olympus which just came down in prince to the 600 to 700 dollar
range. The Olympus is SLR. ARRRGGGGHH. Price and convenience would be the
determining factor. Or you could go on with your current traditional still and
get a photo scanner. There are some small ones out there that are very good. I
hope this helps you. With technology moving the way it is, it is very
difficult to decide what to buy. Cause you know that the very next day you
will see an improvement on the market!!!!!
Good luck,
