Well, I'm selling my Nikon D100. I'm hoping to make at least 650 (I already have some buyers). It comes with a MB-D100 and Nikor 28-70...but thats all beside the fact. My question is about this camcorder: http://cgi.ebay.com/JVC-Everio-GZ-M...090435815QQcategoryZ20331QQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem I'm looking to buy that, not for any film style dealies, just to have a camcorder. I can also take pictures with it, though I don't know how that would turn out. Photography was just a hobby so I'm not really taking a hit there. It shoots in MPEG2. What would it take to edit this format on OS X on Final Cut or iMovie? Would I be better off keeping it in that format (for space saving purposed opposed to .mov) or convert it to something else? (Out of curiosity, what format is DV once on the computer before being finalized? For some reason I never knew). It uses a MicroDrive to hold media. This is the same as a CF card, right? The highest quality the camera can shoot is 8.8mbps, and there are decently priced CF cards that can write at 10mbps. 4gb is still the max for these types of media, right? Also, my final concern is that the product itself is significantly cheaper than any other eBay seller because it is a Japanese product. The menu and whatnot can be set to english, but are there any other drawbacks besides this? It shoots in NTSC, so I'm not worried about PAL or anything. It fits my needs perfectly. Are there any other hybrid (camcorder/camera) cameras around my price range (700 max) that would be better than this one? I know these are a lot of questions, but I need help with this one OT. So, can anybody help me out with some answers? I'd greatly appreciate it. Thanks guys!
