Doing a lot of freelance work for a company that is giving me tapes that are MiniDV (standard and HDV), plus I take home tapes from work that are DVCam. Have a deck that I've been borrowing from work when needed but...thinking it would be a not-so-bad idea to have one of my own. But at $2K for the Sony HVR-M15AU (which is what we have at work)...it's a chunk of change (especially when it's summer doldrum time for work). Not finding any other options though that would export via firewire into my MacPro/edit in FCP. And not finding too many refurbished options either. So if anybody has any ideas/options...would love to hear them Thanks!
