Hi, I'm looking to buy a new camcorder, nothing special just around the GB£300 (US$600) mark. I use Adobe Prem Elements 3.0 and much prefer it to other editing packages so I want to make sure I get something that works with it. I guess most do but have heard the odd problem with compatibility of some camcorders, or perhaps the format.
My problem is that while I happily play with the software and some special effects etc I have never understood the jargon for the formats etc. MiniDV is about the most technical I get, avi mpeg1 mpeg2 etc means nothing to me .
Any advice on any camera types i should go for or even avoid. Have always used MiniDV tapes but i see all these DVD and hard drive camcorders around...do there formats work fine with APE3.0?
