Hi guys, I have been using my canon ixus to record short video clips of boat trips and holiday moments like bungy jumping. I now want to progress to a video camera to be able to transfer to edit in imovie and transfer to DVD. I have been searching the forums and came across recommendations for Canon Elura 100 and Panasonic GS250, GS300 and GS320, but I cannot find these mentioned anywhere in Australian websites. Are these named differently down under? I basically want a MiniDV camera under $500 with firewire, good for indoor use, has a good internal microphone or ability to connect and with the option to use as a webcam. From other posts I am happy to stick with Sony, Canon or Panasonic. I know I am asking for a lot considering my price range, but I am hoping there is a video camera out there that meets my needs. I know nothing about specs for video cameras so any recommendations for cameras available in Australia would be great! thanks!
