Hey everyone, I'm trying to get the parents to upgrade to the DVD Based Home movie camera, so we can stop using the tape version. I'm even converting our old 8MM reels to disc .. Can anyone recomend a good brand, preferably with a 1394 connection? I'm perusing newegg now, and see a few good options under $400's .. But as a Camcorder newbie, I'm not quite sure what constitutes a 'good budget priced' unit... Thanks!
