The final piece to my digital editing suite (said tongue in cheek) is a camcorder. I needed something that would do 16:9 widescreen without sending me to the poorhouse, and the Canon ZR-200 seemed like a good fit. It's miniDV and has FireWire, plus I can convert analog to digital (as in convert VHS to miniDV) and that's cool too because I have lots of old VHS footage.
The price sneaked in just under 300 bucks and I think that's a good deal. I have no idea what the pic quality will be or any other of that stuff, but quality of shot starts with quality of videographer and I think I got that part covered. (grin)
