For $300, you're looking exclusively at miniDV, unless you get a great deal or buy used. Also, I don't think there are any HDD camcorders that have Firewire, but that's neither here nor there.I'm looking for an inexpensive (under $300) camcorder that's easy to use, has nice video quality, and is Mac-friendly. I'd rather not have to deal with flash cards, so a DV or hard disk cam with FireWire would be best. Any recommendations?
yeah i know, but the one have doesn't make very good quality videos either. it's one of the first sony minidvd onesActually, with iMovie'08, they are Mac-friendly. Well, with the DVD camcorders, just make sure you don't stick the DVD in the Mac if it has a slot-loading drive.
Still, I'd go with miniDV.
