First off, I'm sorry if this is in the wrong forum. I am planning on buying a camcoder soon, but I checked some online sites and the choices are overwhelming. So I would like some help telling me which one would be best for me and which one I should avoid. I want it to be something pretty compact, not one of those huuuuge ones. It definitely needs to have USB. I haven't really found out if HDD or memory cards are better, but I would rather go for a memory card as that way I don't have to worry every second if something will happen to the HDD. I haven't yet really set a budget because I don't know what kind of a price I'm looking for, for a generally good camcoder, but I don't want to go completely over the top. If there is something else you guys need to help me choose one please let me know. By the way, are there any compatibility problems with Macs or if I have something like iMovie it should automatically work?
