Ok, maybe some one can dumb this down for me. I thought this would be easy. I have a new iMac on the way and am due for a new camcorder. A bunch of new hd camcorders from sony, panasonic, etc are coming out soon and I figured I would choose from them. However, the more I read about hd and macs, the more I get confused. All the different types of hd, compression, compatibilty with editing programs, burning to that bag of hurt, blu ray.... I have no idea what to do now. maybe someone who has gone through this could help. here's what I do now with videos, nothing special....: I shoot on my old sd canon camcorder. I do very little editing with the clips using iMovie. Pretty much, just trim the long clips down, delete the stuff I don't like. I then use iDvd to burn a copy for my parents and in-laws after making a simple dvd title page (usually just a photo of the kids and some text like Christmas 2006-March 2007). So, I want to keep doing the same type of stuff, just with a new hd video camera. I want a good camera with decent low-light shooting but nothing as expensive as a pro-camera. I want more features then those flip cameras. I want to edit on my mac and burn to a blu ray disc that we can then pop into a blu ray player hooked to an hd tv. But when I look for equipment, I always see that one isn't compatable with macs or the compression makes the hd look like crap or I can't find a decent burner that doesn't cost hundreds of dollars. If anyone out there can help with any advice, I would appreciate it (about any of this, camera advice, burner advice, etc). I hope to buy everything in May when most of the brands have new cameras coming out. Thanks in advance.
