I hate to post another "which camera is best" thread, but I was hoping some folks who are using camcorders around the sub $500 price range could provide some feedback on their choices, and how things are going using iMovie 09 for editing. I will be using it for filming youth football games, and doing quick post processing to generate DVDs for the coaching staff. I've been using a Sanyo Xacti VPC-HD1 for several years, and it does the job, but I'm looking for something a bit better. I will probably still use the Sanyo for some isolation shots on players to mix in with the basic play by play footage. My biggest beef with the Sanyo has been my workflow. Maybe there was a better way, but I was sticking the SD card into my Mac and copying the files onto the hard drive. This took about 30-45 minutes. Then I would import into iMovie, which took another 30-45 minutes. Should I import directly off of the SD card and save time? Anyway, if anyone has any thoughts along these lines with your camera, I would love to hear them!
