If you don’t have a camcorder, get one now.  They are inexpensive and easy to use.  Join the party. Why wait?

The choice of cameras can be confusing with different formats and features. Hard drives, tapes, recordable mini discs.  What’s best for you?

We went shopping this morning at Best Buy in Manhattan with CNET Senior Editor Rich DeMuro.  He explains the formats and devices and makes it all so clear.  Thanks Rich, much obliged.

Here at Beet.TV we use three-chip Panasonic cameras which record on DV tape.  Works for us.
