Hi fellas,

Im new to camcorders. Pls share your knowledge for my special requirement:

1. Should be able to record high quality video automatically for no less than 4 hours. I need to use a tri pod but do not know how to select one & if there are any special features I should lok for. This is the main requirement.

These are secondary:

2. Should have a built-in mic

3. Should be able to upload to a PC via USB/Firewire & view/edit straightaway

Also Id like to know what exactly is the function of a remote control? can it control a tri pod or move a camcorders angle or what?
