Been looking on ebay for one and I nteciod that the HDD’s with HD recording can run at a good price, at around 1200 for the top of the line consumer Sony cam: HDR-HC7 High Definition Handycamae Camcorder. If you are looking for semi-pro. GOOD LUCK! LOL. You are looking at around $1700 to $5000 depending on if you are wanting SD OR HD, at that price, they are all DV’s. You start getting into Memory sticks at about $8000.
