I am new here so I wasnt sure what forum this should go in but here it goes. Ok, I am thinking about buying a camcorder. Well, I have some questions and I was hoping you guys could help. Firstly, Does anyone recommend anything specifically. I dont want to spend more than $400. I would like to spend from $200- $400. Also is digital neccesary; or should I go 8mm. What are the advantages of digital. I would like to edit on my computer and move scenes around and add music and effects but is all that possible with a cheaper digital cam. What moviemacking software is recommended. And also if I do edit like stated above on the computer with a digital then when I finish can I put it on a tape, or will it only be asscesible from the computer. Can I even burn it on a CD and take it with me? Thanks for all the help and I appreciate it a lot.
