1) Which Mac?
2) How did you decide that the camcorder needs to have a hard drive?
3) Photos are different from video. iPhoto and iMovie are different applications used for different reasons.
4) Why was the "more of an inconvenience than useful"?
There will be more questions and discussion, but we need to start somewhere.
Good afternoon! I am new here but have done a bit of research on new camcorders on the site. I am getting a bit overwhelmed with information.
We are expecting a baby this summer and would like to purchase a good camcorder. We purchased one before our first child was born and it was more of an inconvenience than useful.
We have a mac (OS X 10.4.11)> We would like something that plugs in, is immediately recognized (our digital camera works like this) and easily transfers the videos.
A 40-60GB hard drive would be great. High definition is not a requirement.
We have a budget of about $500 to purchase the camcorder, extra battery and case.
Any suggestions would be great!
