but would you be willing to get something like one of the analog/digital bridges from Canopus to do the VHS transfer?
I am shopping for a new camera and am having trouble getting current information about analog to digital converters. I bought my wife a Mac and would like to do my editing there so my understanding is that mini=dv is my only way to go. I am also looking to convert VHS and mini VHS tapes to digital. I will be taping a mixture of indoor and outdoor and would like to spend less than $600. The apple store sells Canon and carries the new zr800 models, however they don't have the converter. I have googled for about a week now and have found that there is a lot of old information out there on older cameras, apparently this was a hot topic in 2001! So here I am, should I buy a Canon zr700, panasonic pv-gs320, or a Sony model. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance
