I am looking for advice on a digital camcorder with the following requirements.....
Background info: I capture a lot a video using a SONY camcorder using DV cassettes and currently have to use a Adobe Premier to capture/convert it onto a computer this process currently takes too long.
I need the camera to capture images like they do, but I dont want to spend time having to capture from a dv cassette which converts it into a digital format like mpg etc to put it onto a computer with software. I would like a camera that I can plug into a computer(or use External Flash Memory) and just download a file quickly for example which can then be automatically played through media player/real player etc. The images need to be of PAL size or higher.
I am not bothered if it does stills but assume that the cameras nowadays mostly do that anyway.
Could you recommend a camcorder for this task...
I may need to purchase some other editing software as well but the main task is to first get a camera.
Many thanks for any Help!
