Look on ebay for the Sony walkman series...


GV-D200 is hi/digital 8 with no screen
GV-D300 is minidv with no screen
GV-D800 is hi/digital 8 with a screen
GV-D900 is minidv with a screen (older model)
GV-D1000 is minidv with a screen (newer model)



Good luck!

Here is a clip from a dvd I am working on. I want to use the decks to capture from the roll bar camera so money is an issue as I sometimes have 6 onboards and can't afford to have them sink or get wet.

some small camcorders have AV in so they may be suitable to use as recorders (and possibly quite a bit cheaper)- if you could pick up something like an old sony pd100- I'm pretty sure it has AV in, you can also record DVcam and preset timecodes with one of these

Unfortunately, the PD100 /a is still selling used for $900+. The digital/hi8 video walkman units for $250 or so. Might be better off with a camcorder as a deck.
