I'm gonna purchase a cheaper video camera from Fred Meyer only because of the wifes discount. I want to be able to go out and film, plug into the computer and edit, transfer to DVD and be able to whatch on the home theatre. What kind of camera do I need to get? What editing software? Feddy's has two in an add. one is $199.99 JVC VHS-C(2.5" rotating LCD color monitor, 700x variable speed digital zoom, integrated light, digital image stabilizer), the other $479.99 Canon Mini DV(20x precision optical zoom lens, 2.5" color LCD screen, image stablizer. Uses SD memory.) These are just two in an add. they have more. what should I look for. I want to stay at like under $600.00-$700.00 for everything. Plus I have to purchase a DVD drive for my PC and get an editing software package.
Thanks for any help.
