I am also wondering about the older type cassette Camcorders, even though some of them are HD are the imagesas good with these cameras, as it would be on the newer tapeless HD fulldigital rigs? and alsoare there big differences in editing.
Thanks for the help Guys, at least I now have some models to start looking at. One thing I notice, when you read reviews on these camcorders, the magazine reviews and sites like C net reviews usuallygive them high marks all around, but when you read actual user reviews, they knock them in all directions especially in the audio functions.
Jim, in answer to your question my computer is only a few years old, it has 768 MB of Ram Memory with a CPU speed of 2486 MHZ, Video Memory 64 MB ….John
Im glad to hear that the quality is not critical to the price! More functions seem to be the option on the high end software. Another problem I may be facing, is not having a Pentium Processer on my computer, I notice system Requirements on Sony Vegas don’t seem to require it, Is that correct? Or do I absolutely need to upgrade my computer now!
Any particular version of Sony Vegas, I see something called MOVIE STUDIO which seems very inexpensive, plus some others for approx $600.00
So what I am hearing is that a Mini DV camcorder may still be the way to go! it seems it is also the format for easy editing, correct? I just assumed all this new hard drive camcorder technology, was to Video, ….what the CD was to video tape!
Thanks for the advice DV. Do you think the MINI DV format will soon be overrun by these newer hard drives and whatever else is new. I have read forum posts talking about the MINI DV tapes jamming and running out all over the inside of the camera, is this a big concern? also you mentioned easier editing with the Mini DV, are the other formats more complicated to work on? and finally do I need to spend $1000.00 dollars on an adobe editing system, or will one of these lower priced software products do a pretty good job?
