    I'm inviting all forum users to let us know if you have a camcorder.
    The results of this will help us to steer our camcorder forum in the right direction.
    Thanks.

    Can we have a button for " I have a camcorder I bought 10 years ago before the birth of our first child, to record those precious moments, but as it proved to be the size and weight of a housebrick, it has languished in a corner ever since" :rotfl:

    I was looking for a similar option, but since the first child is not as old as yours I don't have the size / weight excuse!
    How about an option "I thought I'd make a great film-director/maker/editor, but actually it's a bit tricky and my home movies look like home movies..."

    Or a "I've bought a new one with Digital Stills capability but struggle to decide if that is better than a separate digcam so take both to the wedding/birthday party/Etc and end up using neither"

    HD is just as relevant in the camcorder field and there are some very exciting developments already available with more to come.

    How about. I bought one of those new mini video digital camcorders for easy editing on my pc then realised I would need a hard drive the size larger than having been ever manufactured & a computer with more power than all of NASA put together.

    Regards

    Look again. Hard drives are cheap. (400GB for less than £200 retail) Computers have been perfectly capable of editing DV for years. Even an entry level Mac or equivalent priced PC can do just fine.
