Hi I'm taking my first steps into making my own videos and the JVC GZ-HD7 appears as if it's a real bargain being HD and having a lot of manual controls. The only thing that's concerning me is I hear there are problems editing films because the camcorder records using it's own file type rather than a standardised system that other HD recorders use.
Also although I want to get a HD camcorder of a reasonable quality thinking of the future, at present I am only using standard definition equipment and would only be recording standard not HD or blueray DVD's.
My sister is getting married in the summer and money is tight for her so I really would like to have a go at making a video of the day but would like to be sure I can edit the film so that she doesn't have to have the crap bits.
Can anyone offer any advice or suggestions?
