I am after a digital camcorder to record mainly BMX and Mountain Bike footage on. I have been told that 3chip is the way forward but saying that i dont really fancy spending more than 200/250 unless you lot can talk me around. Id like some 1st hand advice on some choices of camera. I will be editing all the footage on my PC (any good programme anyone can reccommend?) so camcorder-->pc is important - i have firewire and usb2 ports. I also assume that shutter speed will be important as panning and moving bikes need to be captured well. Any tips?
