Hey Guys!
I want to get a new camera. I have a fast PowerPC Mac with Leapord and a whole lot of ram. I want a camera with...

-External Mic Plug
-Preferably HD
-Brand Name(Not Aiptek, DXG, Mustek)
-Price Range-($0-$275) preferably, ($275-$400) MAX!

Can you help me!

I have been looking at...

Aiptek ActionHD GVS

Aiptek High-Definition Digital Camcorder - Black (ActionHD GVS) : Target
Two cons-Not a brand name and Manufacturer does not offer extended warranty, if bought, you must buy one from target or amazon!

Sanyo VPC-CG10 HD Sanyo VPC-CG10 HD Flash Memory Camcorder w/5x Optical Zoom (Black): Camera & Photo
The only con is I cannot connect an external microphone

Sanyo VPC-TH1 HD Sanyo VPC-TH1 HD Compact Flash Memory Camcorder w/ 30x Optical Zoom (Silver): Camera & Photo
The only con is I cannot connect an external microphone
QUOTE Thanks

The new Kodak Zi8 about to be released looks interesting. You'll have to do some research on compatibility with your Mac. I think it will be fine. The spec says it does H.264 with ACC audio and does not mention only the use of a Mac that is Intel. Search YouTube for some sample movies.

The HD video cameras that do AVCHD are a problem for PPC system because Apple didn't provide a decoder for them. I'm think of higher end cameras, not the pocket ones such as above.

When asking questions, post the version of your software. You'll receive better answers.

Please post your results to the thread as it is good feedback.
