I've been asking around here as well as on other sites. I've gotten everything from "use your iPod" to "buy a DSLR" to "DSLRs really aren't that great for video. mini DVs are and they're cheaper"
mini DVs? I haven't played around with those since about 2004! They didn't necessarily seem to be of amazing quality either, but then again, maybe that was just the camera and not necessarily the tape.
I'm really starting to feel lost. Do I just need to buy something and figure out what works through trial and error? That sounds kind of pricey though.
