I have done complete research and development on internet and presently I am looking to buy one camcorder and but confused between DVD , HDD and TAPE. Normally I am looking for one HDD based camcorder but still I want your advice before going to purchase it. I am aware about HDD based hard drive and some basic advantages but I do not have knowledge about tape and DVD ones. So plz tell me all about this camcorder. Tape based is very prone to get damage solely and quality can also be dishonored and hose much one tape can cost? How much hours recording you can do on your TAPE? And for DVD camcorder I do not like to carry DVD. How much recordings one DVD can contain. Can I use recordable DVDs in my DVD camcorder? Right now I have one offer of HDD based camcorder with 30GB memory with 20 hrs recording. But I will buy my camcorder from your people advises.
