    Question New Camera!
    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&#45efinition 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

    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.
