Default Newbie help for a video camera.

Hello Everyone,

I have a dilemma, I have finally decided to get into amateur filming.
I need a camera, I have decided on flash memory for several reasons.

I don't want to spend a lot seeing as how I am just starting out. Somewhere in the one to five hundred region.

Who here can give me a heads up on some good choices?

Can I assume you'll be capturing the footage for editing as well ?
If so the application / software you use for editing , will have a list of compatible cameras
for video capturing.

Take a look at... http://www.wrexcam.com/camcorder.htm ;

...which explains the current issues about what options you could take, quite well.

I have a DVC camcorder myself, from which I can write direct to DVD, editing (to cut out the rubbish) as I go. This is wonderful for family movies, like the olden days, if you have an ordinary TV.

If you want HD, you need to ask again.

Yes, It will be used for editing too. Just to start off, I might just use windows video editor.

Alan T thanks for the heads up on the site, that does help...

Its just so hard to fish through the garbage because I want a good quality, something I could show off online hopefully. So I want it to be good enough for me but also good enough for you tube you know what I saying?
