I am looking to do some hardcore video editing. I have a 3.0MHZ P4mobile 512ddr and 80gb HD laptop Im not looking for taking pictures with this camcorder. Im looking for strait video quality. With the terms of video quality being at least 540lines, which is better. What brands should I go for? D8 seems to be cheaper while getting more bang for the buck. I don't want to spend alot either($500). Will I get the same video quality lines from a MiniDv & D8 camcorder.
