First off, thanks to everyone who reads and provides advice. I am looking to buy a camera/camcorder to use with iMovie '11 to create family DVD's of both still pictures and videos. I am very busy with work and don't have a lot of time for complicated programs, conversions, etc. I will be taking photos of still shots as well as some sports/action pictures and will be filming 5-10 minute sports clips and 20-30 minutes plays/performances. As you can tell, I am not looking to make HBO quality programming; however, I would like the DVD's to be of decent quality. Should I try to purchase/use a separate camera and camcorder or is a good quality DSLR camera capable of providing both the still photos and the video? I would like to stay in the $500-$600 range (less is better obviously) for either both a camera and camcorder or one DSLR that can do both. Any suggestions? Anything else I am not thinking of? Thanks.
