Hi all, I wondered: Why are TAPES being used in digital camcorders??? Digital video information cannot be recorded on a tape!!! Or can it. Another question. In which format are digital camcorders recording. Is it a mpeg video clip or some other format or are these formats being made when downloaded to a computer and can every digital camera be connected to a PC. Phew, I dont snow anything about digital camcorders yet ( sorry ). Please help me of my newbie status Tnx in advance. Sandman.
