Ok... we have our first kid on the way and family scattered all over the place and want to be able to make DVDs to mail to family and also we want to be able to upload videos. I have a DVD burner on my computer. I want something that is easy to burn to DVD without having to spend hours at the computer to do so, but I also want good quality and a camcorder that is made well and will last. So... what kind of recorder should I get (ie. minidv, dvd, hard drive, high def) What brand and model should I go with? Lastly our price limit is around $300 to $350. Thanks for your help, I tried to give as much info as possible.
