I am going to buy a hi-definition camcorder, probably SONY HDR-HC7 and have editing programs that work with Hi def.
However, I do not have a hi def dvd player but do have a hi def TV.
What storage on camera do I buy?
Tape….I can edit in hi def and presumably burn back out a new tape, to play via the camera to my HDTV. I end up with an original tape and an edited. Later on if and when I get a HD DVD player I can presumably put the edited tape in the camcorder; recapture on PC and burn to disk which will play in HD DVD.
Do I need a special dvd burner in my pc form Hi def disks please?
DVD camcorder……much as the tape except that I end up with an original unedited dvd and a new dvd which I have edited….again I presume I can input from the PC to the camcorder to burn a new disk?
Or, do I have to burn the disk in the PC?
This way I end up with a collection of DVD’s originals and editied.
Finally do I go for
Hard Drive camcorder?
I see the problem being that I have no dvd player to play hi def on therefore I need to save the edited footage to something – the camcorder Hard drive will not store it all – it will son run out.
It would mean I would have to save on external Hard drives and put back onto the camcorder to play in the TV as hi def……messy
Am I completely missing the point – if so, please help and advise – I would be very grateful.
