Im looking for a basic DV camera, i've been looking at the JVC GR-DC53 roughly around £279.
My pc is an athlon 2500, 512gb ram, 64mb voodoo card (quite an old card now) I have 2 HDs one thats quite old (20gb, nearly full of junk) and a newish one that i got for £69 which is 80gb.
Why i need the camera? I just want the camera to record some of the things i do!
I dont want to professional edit the videos, but i will wish to do some basic editing, i.e. delete a few frames, include music etc.
I will mostly be using the camera in an aircraft enviroment as im a private/commerical pilot, i want to record some aerobatic routines aswell as the odd scenery flight and some trips. I dont know how the propeller of the aircrafts that i fly will affect the camera.
Please note most of the aircraft i fly have 1 propellor with 2 blades with the propellor turning at around 2500RPM. Will this distort the camera in any way? or will the JVC capture it?
I'm a bit worried about the size of my HDs on the editing part, I hear some people say on these forums that id require 60GB plus? (is this for professional editing?)
Yous guys are probably the experts, so if the JVC GR-53 has a few problems, then please let me know!
