Hi, I have recently become interested at getting a camcorder, mainly due to my Easter trip to New York. I have looked at a few magazines and websites and come to the conclusion that the Sony DCR-TVR14 could be a camcorder to go for. Features I don't need are photo mode as I have my Sony DSC-P72 for that, and a DV-IN as any footage I get I will edit and burn to DVD to view anyway. I was looking on Pixmania and they seem to do a good deal on the TVR14 and a extra battery. Looking at information on batteries the standard battery seems to last about 45 mins with the LCD on, while the best battery NP-QM91D seems to last nearly 5 hours. As the NP-QM91D is bigger does it extend out from the camcorder too much? For £397 for the TVR14 and the NP-QM91D from Pixmania it seems the best deal so far. Are there any other cameras in the price range that could perform better? As I have seen reviews of the TVR14/19 etc and they seem to perform well in image quality as well as having a very little if not zero noise interferance from the motor. Also what sort of software would be good to easily edit footage and burn it to DVD, and what sort of space does a 60 minute DV tape take on a PC? I have a pretty decent machine, XP2800 Barton, 1Gb RAM, 9800 Pro and 2 x 120Gb hard disks. Thanks in advance for any advice.
