As we’re getting ready to roadtrip down to Florida in the next few weeks, I decide that our old camcorder is on it’s last legs (or at least, it’s old and the resolution sucks). I’ve been trying to figure out what exactly I want, and after much debate I picked up a Samsung miniDV unit this weekend.
Let me be the first to say Firewire rocks.
Controlled the whole damn thing from my machine. And exportred my test video to VCD in under 15 minutes. That included the software install.
The camcorder is almost the size of my digital camera and is half the size of my previous camcorder. Twice the resoltion and the sound is awesome.
Oh yeah, I think I’m going to be busy editing when I get back.
