I want to pick up a cheap-o camcorder off ebay for the purpose of getting a helmet camera (www.helmetcamera.com) and use it for riding. I'd also like to download videos to my computer.

However, I know jack about camcorders. I'm looking at digital ones because I'd think that putting the video on my computer would be easier. But the analog ones are so much cheaper. Also, I can't tell from the ads how long the digital ones can record for. With the analog ones, you can just carry an extra tape or two.

Advise please.

I have a sony trv350 digital 8 camcorder. it takes great video and wasn't too expensive. i can get 1 hour per tape and i got 2 extended batteries, cause the stock one sucks, and i can pretty much do as much as i want. it also takes digital still photo's and can "capture" a photo from the tape.


MissS:no now!!!

bambam nope you said i have a few hours

MissS: I changed my mind

bambam: see MissS: well, you have a few hours

MissS: I'm a female, allowed to do it

Check out the Canon Elura 40 and 50's, they are one of the smaller cameras out there right now and they record onto both DV tape and memory card. The picture quality is on par with some higher end prosumer cameras I've worked with. DV tapes usually hold 60 minutes and memory cards are going to depend on their size.
They have both firewire and USB for hooking up to your computer.
