In the Market to Make Movies.

Our current camcorder is a bit...out of date. It records what we need it to, but unfortunately was gifted to us pre-blogs, pre-facebook, etc. There is no way to download any of the videos to a computer. They only go on the little tapes...remember those? We love the camcorder, but I want to be able to burn dvds, put video on the blog, etc. And with a new baby coming up...well, we're in the market for something new.

So...what do you have? We are thinking a Flip? Or something else?

Help.

Yes! So you have one??? Is it super easy to download to a computer? Does this mean you should be posting adorable video of sweet Claire???

We have a panasonic PV-GS180: http://www.amazon.com/Panasonic-PV-GS180-MiniDV-Camcorder-Optical/dp/B000DZKSXQ

It uses firewire so your computer has to have firewire. The hard drive camcorders are OK but the people I know who have them say they have problems with the download. We've had ours for 4.5 years and it still works great.

Yes--we have one! Best Christmas present ever...super easy to use, super tiny and yes I should be posting videos of sweet C. But where would I post? Still no blog. I suck. We have a mac and the flip has a built in usb port thing. So easy.
