Re: 4 wheelin Video Camera, what kind do you like/rec
Do you want to edit on the computer or on a VCR ? I had a non digital camera , but I outgrew it and decided to go with a DV setup . Now with a firewire cable I can run the video stright to Adobe and start chopping . Adobe has a steep learning curve , but Windows movie maker is a good starting point .
My camera is a Panasonic mini dv and I take it on every trip . I have a hardsided cooler that I lined with foam and that is where the camera stays while I am not using it . It has done well ,even surviving a month in dusty Moab .I have seen mini dvs for 399.00 and you can get an open box one even cheaper .
If digital editing is of no concern I had good luck with a Hi-8 JVC . It was simple to use and took a beating . Hope this helps.
