    I'm just starting out so please be gentle!

    Actually, I'm still studying. I'm looking for a cheap second hand video camera for my final postgraduate film.

    I'm going to be filming in the tropics and there won't be a repair centre for hundreds of miles. It might be rainy, it will definitely be sticky, and I'll be exhausted.

    My current camera is a Canon XM2 and I don't like its semi-manual focussing. My tutors recommend the Sony PD170 and I'm finding it rather hard to come by or just too expensive.

    Could you please post sensible suggestions. My budget is non-existent so I have been looking on ebay but its all old stuff and it looks like I'll have to pay more than 99 pence :D
