I carry my camera everywhere so I don't have the full baggage of miniDV tapes and more. Let me share a little secret about making the DVD.
DVD FLICK and other titles can make that next step all too easy.
I am wanting to upgrade from a Canon Powershot A620 to the Canon S5 primarily for the additional zoom capability. But, I also need a new camcorder and can't afford to buy both at this time.
I am a "flag football mom" (aka soccer mom) and have yet to take the time to figure out how to transfer my miniDV videos to DVD. However, I was able to easily make a short little DVD from a video I took using my A620. What would be the disadvantage of using a new camera with a large SD card to take home movies and then burn to DVD?
