I've finally finished some scripts that I wanted to shoot just as a fun project for myself and was in the market for a digital camcorder. After researching all the specs and jargon I'm lost and could really use some guidance. Basically what I want to do is to be able to shoot digitally, transfer to my computer via firewire, edit the movie on my computer and record it to a DVD. My requirements or wishlist if you will are: Good daylight and low light recording widescreen aspect ratio 480p recording anamorphic enhanced dvd burning[/list=wishlist] What I don't know is if the digital cameras record progressively. I noticed some cameras say they are progressive but looking closer it says for stills. Not sure if it is for video as well. I also don't know if burning your own anamorphic or "enhanced for widescreen tv's" DVD's is possible. I'm looking at a $600 budget and was hoping that this holiday season may lend itself to some good deals but I have no idea what to look for. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
