Recommendation

Video Forum - photo.net - photo.net
I know this will shock people on this forum, but I am still shooting 8-mm digital video with a Sony DCR TRV-840 Digital Handycam. Admittedly, I don't shoot much video. My wife uses a Canon DC-210 mini-DVD camcorder. (In fact, we use the Canon for most video as we can easily burn full-size DVDs on our PCs.)

Unfortunately, I dropped the Canon onto a concrete surface a few weeks ago and it is pretty much kaput. I don't think it makes any sense to have it repaired as the cost will exceed that of a new camcorder. We are now "stuck" with just the Sony 8-mm Handycam until we buy a replacement, which is fine for me -- I still shoot film for stills! -- but will not suffice for my better half. (My old Bolex H-16 reflex was just fine, thank you.)

Does anyone have any recommendations on a replacement? I assume we are limited to a camcorder that uses memory cards as mini-DVDs are obsolete and my "ancient" 8-mm Handycam is positively luddite -- what does that make my Bolex? Thanks for your help.
