Hi A friend wants to buy a new Alu MacBook to replace his iMac (which he's going to sell to a friend). He's not very technical, but he does a lot of video editing in iMovie HD 6. (He's tried iMovie '08 and finds it vastly under-featured, and he can't get his head around FCE). He's also thinking about buying a new camcorder to replace his ageing Firewire/DV one. What would be a good camcorder for him to buy? Obviously, FireWire-only DV cams are out, because of the lack of FireWire on the MacBook. So it looks like it'll have to be a USB camera with a built-in hard drive. But, don't these cameras tend to record in MPEG4 or MPEG2? My experiences of using MPEG4 with iMovie always ended up crappy quality, and MPEG2 isn't editable at all (and takes ages to convert to an editable format). Is there a hard drive camcorder out there that records in .dv format? Any suggestions? Thanks & regards, Superleccy PS: Unfortunately, a MacBook Pro is way beyond his budget.
