Default Camcorders ?????

My daughter is expecting twin girls in late Feb or early March '07. I would like to give her a camcorder to record their memorys for the next few years. Question is ,,what should I be looking at? There are various media types etc. to consider.
I have a Sony Hi-8 now but its 10 plus years old. New technology media ,,is it better?




Thanks

Barry

What's your budget?

If you go with video-tape over recording direct to dvd or memory card be sure to copy your video-tape to your PC, from there you can create dvd or memory card.

I'm probably looking at mid range here. I just finished copying several HI 8 tapes through the pc and onto DVD's. It was slow but worked ok.
