    I have a Sony TRV-10 (minidv) that is nice, but is old & kinda large.

    I have no desire to use tapes anymore really, but what other storage options are there (other than the internal HDD ones)?

    I gave up transferring movies to my PC because doing it from the tape takes so long. Is it a lot faster to transfer with the hard drive cameras?

    anyone have any recommendations? i like sony & canon.

    so say i get a high definition camera with a built-in hard drive.

    how large would, say, a 30min HD movie be (file size)? I assume once i fill up the hdd, i'm screwed until i can export it to a computer & format the drive?

    hmmm

    i'd go the HD hard drive route. the only other way is DVD. but there is something about an optical writing drive that gets bumped around a lot. i'm sure they're fine but i'd stay away.

    can you load directly to something like external hard drive to gain more storage (ipod?) for a trip?

    yeah, i don't care for DVD recording.

    if i could plug an external hdd right into the camera to export, that would be fucking badass (not have to use a computer).
