The wife and I are in the market for a new digitial camcorder. We're not really sure if we want MiniDV or DVD. I do want one with an optional microphone and with fast transfer to the PC (is USB 2.0 fast enough?). We're Sony folks, but we could be convinced to get a different brand. $600 is probably the absolute limit I could talk my wife into spending.
I've checked reviews on Consumer Reports and CNet. Any advice from RedsZone?
