I have been filming deer/turkey hunts for myself and friends for the last couple of years using a cheap, very old( 10 year old) Hi8 video camera. I'm getting the bug to learn more about equipment and would like to ask a few questions.
I'm still looking for inexpensive equipment, but I would like to get a new camera, and an editing program for my computer. I might even need a new computer??
What do you guys think about this video camera, and what type of editing program would be simple to use with a camera such as this one?
Also, after I film a hunt, do the editing, I would like to be able to burn it to a dvd.
I want to get a new camera soon, then learn as I go.
Thanks in advance! Bullz >>-->
