Hello forum users, With this being my first post i'll try and make it a good one. I bought an iMac G5 just before Christmas and purchased Final Cut Express HD about 2 weeks ago. I would now like to buy a digital camcorder to capture directly into my Mac through a Firewire 400 connection. There are a few other features I would like as well... Microphone in would be a nice touch (i'm a music tech student, always after the best sound!) Analogue - digital converter (so I can record directly from my TV and old analogue camcorder) The highest pixel quality possible (all recorded work will end up in DVD projects) A still camera function would be nice but not a neccessity. A light of some kind for those extra dark situations! (no sexual references whatsoever please) That's about it. My budget is anything from £250 to £650. I have a few Sony models I am interested in, would like your advice on them, if you know if they're the latest models, good for what I need... £469 - http://www.pixmania.co.uk/uk/uk/84593/art/sony/dcr-pc55-camcorder-black.html £612 - http://www.pixmania.co.uk/uk/uk/84565/art/sony/camcorder-dcr-hc90.html £675 - http://www.pixmania.co.uk/uk/uk/20360/art/sony/camcorder-dcr-ip55.html Thank you for your assistance!
