You can do better There are plenty of decent, basic Hi-8 cameras out there with nightshot and flipout LCD viewfinders. My advice? Get one of those.

Analog Handycam Camcorder
The CCD-TRV118 provides excellent video quality and features NightShot Infrared system for recording in total darkness (0 lux), and a built-in video light. The InfoLithium Battery with AccuPower meter system provides battery life remaining in minutes and is not prone to memory effect like Ni-Cad batteries.


1/6" CCD Imager, 320K Pixels Gross 1/6" CCD imager with 200K (effective) pixels provides great detail and clarity, with exceptional analog video performance. Hi8 Video Recording Records outstanding video quality up to 400 lines of horizontal resolution with Hi-Fi sound on affordable Hi8 and 8mm tapes. 20X Optical/560X Digital Zoom The optical zoom helps to bring the action up close from far away. In addition, the digital zoom interpolation means that extreme digital zooming is clearer, with less distortion than previous types of digital zooms. 2.5" SwivelScreen LCD Display (61K Pixels) Provides excellent viewing clarity with improved resolution. The 61K pixel LCD rotates up to 270-degrees for multiple viewing angles, providing sharp, detailed images for monitoring or playback. Manual Focus Allows the user to adjust the camera's focus, allowing more creativity and/or effects. Manual focusing also allows the user to control the camera's focus in difficult situations. Built-In Light (3 Watt) Brightens your videos when shooting in low light situations. NightShot Infrared System With Sonys NightShot infrared system you can capture video even when shooting in total darkness (0 lux) up to 10 feet away using the built-in infrared system. Battery Information Battery information is momentarily displayed without having to power on the camcorder. Quickly access the battery's status by pressing the Battery Info button. The Recording Time Available is displayed in minutes, on either the LCD screen or viewfinder. InfoLithium Battery with AccuPower Meter System Charge the battery at any time because unlike NiCad (Nickel Cadmium) batteries Sonys rechargeable Lithium-Ion batteries are not subjected to a life shortening memory effect. Sonys exclusive AccuPower meter displays the battery time remaining in minutes, in the viewfinder or the LCD screen. Stamina Battery Power Management System Using the optional NP-QM91D InfoLithium battery the CCD-TRV118 can record up to 15 hours on one complete charge, providing extra long battery life. Program AE (Auto Exposure) Modes Program AE modes make recording easy even when filming in challenging situations. Choose from Portrait, Beach & Ski, Sports Lesson, Landscape, Spotlight or Sunset & Moon modes. Picture Effects Get creative when recording or playing back videos with Sonys Picture Effect modes. Effects available in Camera mode: Negative Art, Sepia, Black & White, Solarize, Slim, Stretch, Pastel and Mosaic. Effects available in Playback mode: Negative Art, Sepia, Black & White and Solarize. End Search Advances the videotape to the last 5 seconds of the recorded scene. This prevents accidentally recording over previous recorded videos. Fader Effects Enhance your personal videos by adding professional looking fader effects. Choose from Black, Mosaic, Black & White, Bounce and Stripe. Titling Add professional looking titles to your videos, select from 8 preset or 2 customized titles with up to 22 characters. Easy Dubbing Connect the Handycam camcorder to a VCR deck to make VHS copies of your home videos quickly and easily. The camcorder can control up to 59 brands of VCRs.
