Playback Help

Sorry in advance if this is a dumb question. I am wondering about an inexpensive solution for playback of my tapes. I don't use my GL2 for any professional endeavors, just to record our precious daughter's life. I currently use a tape rewinder to rewind the tapes, but still have to use the GL2 for playback. If I were to buy an inexpensive Mini-DV camera to just play back the tapes for digitizing purposes, would I take a 'quality hit' on the image? If not, what would you suggest I buy?

Thanks

Steve

No, an inexpensive DV cam will work just fine. The signal is being transfered digitally from one source to another. There should be no loss of quality at all.

I started using a sony minidv cam for playback, and now have upgraded to a dv deck.
