Video Camera Recommendations

Recommended Posts

Can anyone recommend a good but very very very cheap Mini DV video camera that will have no problems working with the latest iMovie or Final Cut, I suppose that just means one with a firewire out.

 

I've seen loads with a USB out. Do they work with the Mac?

im fairly sure that you need a firewire camera to work with imovie.

 

on a similar note, does anyone know of a good cheap midrange dv camera. ive been looking at the Canon XL2 but that is just way too expensive. Thanks.

Yes, it does. I'm not sure how much cheaper you can go before you can't get anything functional, it looks like a good one.

The sony handycam series is usually pretty good. It's what i use, and it's great. the batteries can be fat sometimes, but it's worth it.

Yeah I just went for Sony because they put firewire in everything so I assumed their cheapest model would support iMovie.
