    I have canin mv800i camcorder.

    I am confused from a no of web sites..some saying it does not support
    taking still images..while others say that it takes stills to mini dv
    tape only(as it does not support mmc/sd etc cards).

    So please can anybody confirm if this camcorder has any still image
    function or not...and if to take still images and save it to
    my pc...

    Thanks very much.

  2. Hi,
    altough your camcorder might have still image capability, it would be a
    burden to save to mini dv tape.IMHO it would be much better to buy a
    good,not-very expensive digital still camera.You can get one with 7.2
    megapixels for 260 euros, and if that's too expensive for you, there are
    cheaper ones.As someone else said on this forum, still cameras are better
    still cameras than camcorders.And camcorders are better camcorders than
    still cameras.
