Digital Video?

Archived from groups: rec.video.desktop (More info?)

Hi,
I am shopping for a digital video camera!
I want to get a 3CCD/HDV camera. I hear HDV is a must for TV. I also want
to make flv files so I can incorporate video with Macromedias' Flash.

Can anyone suggest any good digital video cameras?

Also, I want to know what PC software will do the same as Apple's Final Cut
Pro? My Mac G4 really can't handle all of Final Cut's features, but my Dell
Laptop is much more powerful.

Thanks for your help.

    You might want to try CamcorderInfo as a source of information about
    consumer grade camcorders.

    HDV may be more than what you need. Without knowing more about your
    budget (for example, I don't know whether you want to spend $2000 or
    $20,000) and specific technical requirements, it's difficult to say.

    Video editing software is sort of a personal choice. If you check the
    "Editing HDV" section of my Web page (URL in sig), I think that you'll
    find that most of the products listed will edit SD (standard
    definition) video just fine on a notebook computer.

    Good luck!
