    I need to buy one ASAP. I've got 300-500 Dollars to work with, so I need something in those price ranges. The problem is, I don't know anything about camcorders!

    Here are some things that would be important to me:

    -Pixels
    -Quality LCD Screen
    -Size (small, but not too small)
    -Recording and transfer (MiniDV? DVD?) - I need something that I can hook right up to my computer, and get the video on there for editing in Sony Vegas.

    MiniDV? DVD? Hi8? Digital8?

    What would you guys recommend? I'll be using the camera for a vacation, and throughout my senior year for alot of school projects. Here are some I was looking at:

    -Memory Card- (I would think when it starts to get full, it slows down drastically. Much like a digital camera does with you get close to a full card)

    -MiniDV-

    I'm very lost! Any recommendations, or information anybody could provide would be much appreciated!
