Don't get the one with 234 pixels
I got one, and it was not good at all
I now have one with 480 pixels and its much better
Type in 7" Touch on ebay and you'll find the 7" higher res screens for around 190
Do not get the lower res

Cheers,
I did a search and found a bunch of liliput ones, three different ones to be exact. good prices, can they be fitted to the camcorder shoe?

Thanks. That's actually the place I'm thinking of getting the monitor from, the top one. So I might just get the bracket for that also from the same site.

Kevin,

This wouldn't be UK... but these folks might at LEAST know of a reseller in your neck of the world.

www.thetapecompany.com

They sell the Panasonic MQ tapes.
And, for the record, I have exclusively used the 83 minute MQ tapes for a LONG time. I almost NEVER have dropouts in them whatsoever. I love that tapes and highly recommmend them.

Cheers!
Luke

Thanks but I did end up finding a place in the uk who stock these tapes. I bought two Panasonic PQ tapes and have yet to open them. I've read I should ideally stick with one kind of tape and I trust PQ are fine, unless anyone should warn me from using them.

my turn for a question...

does anyone have any recommendations on an on-camera light? I've just seen a brochure from Ianiro and had a look at their site and they look pretty smart - I think I like the Aladino kit.

what do you guys think? - www.ianiro.com
