It is usually a very inexpensive item.
I am looking for a camcorder that has great video and audio quality. I also want to be able to really edit what I shoot. I have read that MiniDV is the best way to go if you want good video/audio quality and want to edit what you shoot. The only problem is that I don't have a FIREWIRE port on my computer, and I know that you need FIREWIRE to take what you shoot from a MiniDV camcorder and put it on your computer for editing. I am not sure if I should just go with a Mini DVD camcorder, but I also heard that editing from DVD's is very limited, and a pain to do. I am just curious if anyone can give me a solution to my problem.
