I'm looking at getting the Sony HDR-XR520 for the filming I do of basketball games. However, i am also upgrading my computer to a Macbook Pro with the following specs

  • 3.06GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
  • 8GB 1066MHz DDR3 SDRAM - 2x4GB
  • 500GB Serial ATA Drive @ 5400 rpm

    I use Sony Vegas to edit, and in my research I have found many people having problems with the files on transferring them from cam to comp. I basically was wondering if anyone has any recommendation for a good quality HD cam (budget of up to 1200) which will film real good quality sports action and give me very little hassle capturing to a Mac and then editing in Sony Vegas.

    Any thoughts? Thanks very much in advance
