    Default what video cam for self-filming hunts?

    i need something fairly inexpensive that will allow low light/night hunts to be filmed decent enough for youtube. ive got a Sony Handycam,and it works pretty good but w/o buying extra accessories i cant put them on PC. something that can be plugged into the computer and uses an SD card would be nice. im working with a craigslist budget. any input is appreciated

    Sorry Hawg I don't. I wanted to know so that I might be able to steer you a certain direction. I'm using a Canon HF S30.

    Hawg,

    How come you can't download to PC? What model camcorder do you have and what is the format (Mini DV?). I thought all the Handycams had provisions for downloading to PC.

    its a ccd-trv108. it uses the Hi8 mini video cassettes. theres some kind of converter that i need to plug the cam into,then plug that into the computer. i researched it online yesterday and decided it would be more simple and maybe more cost effective to find something ready to rock.

    GD,that looks like something that would work. have you youtube'd any vids with it?

    Double S, that is a nice set up you have there. not just the camera,either. $1100 is way morethan i have to get started.
