Transfer of Data?

by Mazz1916 / February 27, 2008 12:30 AM PST

I'm looking into buying my first Camcorder. I was thinking about the Canon ZR830 MiniDV as a cheap but decent starter cam. Unfortunately it seems to only use firewire as a means to transfer information to a PC. I only have a laptop so installing firewire isn't an option. My my question is this, are there any cheap decent camcorder models out there that use USB?
