I currently have a 200 dollar gift certificate I am putting toward a digital camera. Thing is, the gift certificate is to Best Buy so that is where I will make my purchase. I would rather not spend anymore then $500. Here is a list of some of the camcorders I saw on their website, but I would like some professional opinions on which ones to go with. This isn't for anything like professional movie editing as you can imagine I just want a nice camera that I WILL be making dvds on my cpu with. Much better then the Sony Hi-8 that has to be taken through a Canopus 100 convertor right now. argh... Anyway, here is the list. Let me know your thoughts.
