I am thinking of buying my first Digital camcorder (possibly JVC GRD20), but am totally confused! I simply want to use the camera to take on holidays, family at home etc - not requiring pro performance - and then put the results onto CD disc to play in my DVD player (as I already do with 'stills'). My questions are:- What other bits& pieces will I need to buy? Firewire card and lead I understand, but will I need extra software (and if so , what?). Will my computer be able to handle the size of the downloads - 13.6Gb hard Drive Free Space, 1750mHz Pentium 4 processor. I was told at least 60Gb was required. Will my CD burner that I use for my 'stills' also do the video (I use the Windows software for that). All in all I am tempted not to bother and hope things get simpler, as I have had so much conflicting advice - Can anyone help an ageing novice??
