Just last week, or the week before, we bought ourselves a new gadget. I’ve (chris) wanted a video camera / handycam for a while now. Our holiday to the states later in the year seemed like a great excuse to get one.
We ended up going through the fine folks at retravision, thanks John! we got ourselves a SONY sr300e handycam. This thing is great, it has a 6 megapixel stills camera, it’s small and light and so far I have found it easy to use. It records straight to a 40 gigabyte hard drive. We also ended up buying an external 80 gigabyte hard drive which we will take with us and transfer footage over from the handycam to the hard drive as we travel. I’m sure 120 gigabytes should be enough memory to cover all footage we take while we are away!
