As a father of two young children, my wife is constantly pleading with me to videotape our kids activities. I had a high-8 video camera, but i dont really care for it and I wanted something more modern that I could hook into my computer and burn onto dvd. I am new to the digital stuff, but I heard there is a a digital tape and one with a memory stick (like my diigital camera). Any recommendations. Looking for something relatively simple to operate, that takes nice videos, that I can hook to my computer for dvd copying and that is not going to break my wallet (i would probably go 500-1000 range) Thanks.
