My wife and I are looking for a good quality video camera to buy. We don't want to spend over $300 to $400 on a decent camera. We have an old (5+ years) tape based camera that the video quality....well frankly it sucks! We want a camera that is going to take high quality video (not necessarilly HD, but still good). I am ignorant in the video camera space. What specs do I look for, etc? I will likely walk into a big box store (best buy, circuit city, etc.) and buy one next week. I just wanted to do some research before I commit. Our needs are only family video. However, I want to dabble in video editing with my new Macbook Pro (using iMovie and iMovie 06). Any suggestions?
