Recommendations needed (but I have a fair idea)

    Im looking for a cheapish camcorder which is in line with the following:

    1) Small
    2) Lightweight
    3) Decent ish image quality (I have a 3.2mp camera that can do video, it
    needs to be better than this)
    4) No requirement for photos - I have the camera for that!
    5) Pretty good in poor light - want to do a lot of woodland filming

    As an added bonus, on a maybe more expensive camera;

    6) Nightvision
    7) MP3
    8) Rotatable viewscreen

    I have found the following camera (beware of text wrapping)

    http://www.ebuyer.com/customer/prod...2hvd19wcm9kdWN0X292ZXJ2aWV3&product_uid=61575

    I like the price, the size, the mp3, the viewfinder. I dont like the poor
    reviews of film quality. Does anyone have any experience of this camera, or
    know where I can download a film of its quality so I can ese how good/poor
    it is before a purchase.
    Alternately, any other cameras considered upto a budget max of £180

    Regards
    Lee

    The only half-decent camcorder anywhere near your budget is
    the JVC GR-D240 at about £197 from Digital Direct.
