I think CNET has a Camcorder finder too.
I haven't bought a new camcorder since 2007, and browsing around now, it seems like all of the new camcorders are hard disk, flash disk, etc. Is tape deck technology being discontinued for consumer grade products (it seems like the professional ones are still using it).
I have been using a tape deck camcorder which connects for high quality video conferencing via an IEEE connection, and that has worked great for me until I upgraded to Windows 7 and now it won't detect my old camcorder.
None of the camcorders I've been looking at feature an IEEE connection. USB only connections in the past have been fairly degraded in quality, not up to par. Is there some other high quality connection for live streaming that is possible with the new cameras or do I have to buy an old camcorder (and possibly have problems getting it working on my system too).?
to slice this. If the same computer hardware is being used and the "new" operating system does not allow for using the existing IEEE1394 (firewire) port, then how about getting that to work? Since it apparently *used* to work before the move to Windows 7, then the "new and improved" operating system seems the culprit is there.
