Ok guys I need some info on which PB I should buy and DV camcorder if you have any recommendations. Now my story to give an idea of my situation. I am a Dental student who's about to graduate and do a thesis and presentation. Right now I have an ibook 800 but doubt it will be sufficient for what I need to do. See I plan to take stills and video(DV Cam that can do both well) from patients. For the still's I plan to morph between before and after shot's and for the video to be able and blurry out the patients face and possibly alter voice to keep the anonymous as my selection will be most likely of individuals with some risky behavior that hey might not divulge otherwise. I estimate about 50 individuals so I will need to us a good amount of images and video. Is the 17' worth the extra price as as far as speed is concerned. Money is no problem as I will need to purchase software as well so any recommendations welcomed since I don't think I movie will cut it for me. The Cam will be purchased in Aug. and the PB at most by Dec. Any help is appreciated especially those that use their Mac's for media.
