Can anyone recommend a digital camcorder they have purchased ?

It is wanted for home and holiday filming and loading to an XP PC.

I've got a Sony DCR-PC9E, and it's great.

Hmm, seems to have been discontinued!

The DCR-PC8 seems to have a very similar spec at first glance...

Thanks Jimn.

I went for the Sony DCR-PC120 which also does stills of 1.5Mp so should give a half decent still. Also does Mpeg 2 short movies onto the memory stick. Has bluetooth built in.
Best price from Pixmania in Paris. Nice feature of Pixmania is they use DHL with next day delivery as standard and you get the DHL tracking URL and see the parcel moving at every stage on its way to you. My camera left DHL Heathrow 6:40 this morning. Nice feature that.

The DCR-PC101 also is good (and is £150 cheaper) but does stills of 1Mp
