I'm getting your messages. It does seem to be very quiet on this list

I haven't seen any replies to your previous questions re: a new camcorder.
My knowledge in that area is also somewhat limited/dated, but I agree with
your concerns re: some of the new consumer HD models. It's a little bit

for editing and re-converted back to MPEG-2 to put on DVD.

Unless you're just taking home videos and don't plan on editing anything, I
would stick with tape-based DV (if any still exist) or possibly camcorders
with hard drives/flash drives that will record higher quality (ie not
MPEG-2) codecs that can be edited directly - assuming they are within your
