I used to capture video on an analog camcorder and digitise it through a Pinnacle box for use in Powerpoint presentations. A few years later I want to start doing similar.

What I am after is a camcorder that can film moving equipment indoors at quite good shutter speeds (my digital camera video mode is too slow). I also want to edit on a laptop (no Pinnacle card) so I would need the camcorder to capture in a common digital format that was quick and easy to transfer to the laptop.

The use requires a number of short clips so storage size is not too big an issue, it would entail a number of films of which none are likely to be greater than one minute.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
