What's your budget? Are you looking for HD quality? Would you like a tape based camera?
Video Cameras come in lots of varieties - so deciding on whether you need a consumer, pro-sumer or pro camera (often depends on budget) would be a good place to start.
Well im thinking around $1000 Aust (400GBP).
A couple i tagged on ebay
-Canon XH-A1 High Definition Mini DV Camcorder
We on pal broadcast here in Aust but about to change to digital. So i do wonder if im better to go a digital type camera. Not sure if makes any difference. Any advice is really appreciated
I haven't used either of these two cameras... but I know the Canon XH-A1 is one of the standards for broadcast... isn't this a tad over your budget???
Second hand they are usually about Â£2000 I think!

I'd recommend you google these cameras for review and be careful that you are bidding for the 'genuine camera' on ebay.
