I am looking to buy a camera and I don't know which one to choose. I think the mini DV records to a tape(is that bad or outdated?). The DVD Handycam records onto dvds but only 30 minutes each! The Mini DVD records like an hour or two, I'm not sure. Before you say "Why don't you look online?", I have already and that's where I'm getting confused. I just thought if someone knows about cameras they can point me in the right direction. Basically I'm just looking for a camera that can record at least 2 hours straight, with good picture quality, that I can hook up to my computer to transfer the videos. Any help is appreciated. Thanks. Oh yeah, I'm not sure I want to buy sony anymore(I'm sick of sony!) but I will consider it if it is the right one.
