I am debating whether I should get a Hard disk camcorder or a MiniDV. I love the fact that I could record so much more w a Hard disk drive, but backing up may be an issue. What I really want to know is if the HDD camcorders are a pain to edit. I am currently using the new and old version of iMovie, depending what I'm in the mood for. I might upgrade to Final Cut Express. I've heard MiniDV's are the easiest to edit, and I have experience with them. But HDD sounds pretty good too . . . And what hard disk drive camcorders are compatible?? I've looked everywhere for a list of compatible camcorders . . . Apple used to have one on its site, but it must have disappeared. So, two questions: compatible camcorders? Hard disk drive camcorders hard to edit?
