The last time I used a camcorder it was the type that used those little tapes. I still have it but probably you can't transfer to the computer easily. I would like to be able to record something and put a snippet on my website. Also maybe upload something to utube. I am starting from ground zero and know absolutely nothing about any of it.
I was looking at a Best Buy ad and it lists the following camcorders:
JVC Everio GZ-MS230 with a tripod, PNY 8GB SDHC memory card and case for $260.
Samsung SMX-F40 (doesn't mention accessories) $170.
Sony Handycam DCR-SX63--record directly to 16GB internal flash memory, SC/SDHC memory cards or memory stick. $300
Sony Handycam DCR-SR68--record to built in hard drive $350
Canon Vixia HiDef HF-R10--record in 1920 x 1080 HD video $450.
Can someone please tell me what direction I need to go. I am not asking you to pick from these, but can someone tell me at least what would do the job without being overkill.
