I'm a college student who is going to be buying a digital camcorder in the near future. The main thing I plan on using it for is taping snowboarding footage and transfering the footage to my pc for editing. Basicly what I'm asking is what the best quality camcorder would fit that need is, while not costing me an arm and a leg. I've been reading reviews for the low-end Sony digital-8 cam, and it seems to be my number one choice at the moment. Any suggestions would be much appreciated.
