    Camcorder - Sony vx9000e (2), big, old, shoulder mounted, noisy, smeary, lovely balance, can sit on my shoulder for hours no sweat. Sony pc4e, small, sneaky.

    Editing - vegas 7.0

    DVD camcorders - produce video tghat is hard to edit and has a lower bit rate then dv, so slightly poorer picture.

    Sony FX1
    Canon XM2
    Panasonic NVDS15+17 for those 'lesser' moments.
    and a number of small bullet cams.

    Final Cut Studio all the way!!


    And DVD Cameras...Pffft! Would touch one with a barge poll [unless i'm being paid to](see reasons above + annoying codecs + in my experience lower res)
