I am in need of some help please:

I am looking to get a camcorder to film a sporting hobby that I do. I will mostly edit all the footage I film on Vegas 9, and upload to various online sites.

I've seen people recommending MiniDV format camcorders with FireWire for editing:- Is this good advice?

I have been looking at the Panasonic SD10 which seems appealing, but i don't really know much about camcorders

Thanks in advance
