I was just wondering if it was okay or not. You can pick them up for under $100 on ebay.

I may be wrong, but this seems equivalent to the latest Digilife hybrids, for far less $$. It may actually be a Digilife clone, but I can't tell. This should be a very good hybrid at any price. Unless it's a junker disguised as the latest models, at this price it's a steal.

The seller on ebay gives you a 7 day return policy so I may get one just for the heck of it and give it a try.

I went with a sanyo xacti c6 instead. I couldn't get past the limitations of the digital zoom.

Picked one up new for $256

excellent choice. you'll be 10x optical zoom happier?

mrphotoman Dec 17, 2006 3:26 PM

I bought it for my daughter. I have a S3 and a 10D but I think I may get me one of these too. It would be great for my stickypod for when I drag race/auto-x.

I look forward to playing with the camera when it arrives. :)

I bought the 8600 model before seeing the 8800. :doh:

If you can get it for under $100, thats a great price. Recent auctions have it going for $150 +

mrphotoman Dec 18, 2006 7:25 PM


how is the picture and video quality, post up some samples.

try not to use youtube since they compress the hell out of the video and it looks like crap afterwards.

Stills are good, in good light. I tried to put a 6MP pic on imageshack, but must have exceeded their size limit as it was stored at 800X600.:evil:

Will try to find a host that will take 6MP stills andvideo without re-compression.

BTW, auction prices on both the HDDV-8600 and HDDV-8800 are coming down.Maybe reaching saturation with rapid sales of both.:-)
