    What Camcorder would you recommend?
    With a $700 budget, what camcorder would you recommend for video uploads to a personal website? I would use the camcorder to video urban scenes, interviews, and group discussions that I host.

    which brand would you recommend too?

    Well, I'd definitely recommend getting a HDD camcorder. Its a lot easier to upload and you don't have to deal with DVDs or the Cassette tapes. Also, I don't think you can put mini DVDs into the iMac. I have a MacBook and put a mini DVD in there once and got it stuck. I regret buying my mini DVD camcorder. Definitely go for a HDD and possibly a Sony.

    Greetings

    I disagree with the idea of using an HDD camera.

    1) With tape you get near broadcast quality video.

    2) If you get a camera with DV in then you can archive completed iMovie projects back to tape. It saves the situation when your precious footage on DVD gets scratched or otherwise ruined.

    3) See David Pogue's iMovie and iDVD - The Missing Manual pages 18 - 30
