When I began this thread, on 05 August, I thought we were going to get
the camcorder the next day. We finally got it yesterday! Very long
delay, for the company where my stepson works, to approve it for sale,
at a deep discount.......    It is DVD and from a review I read about
the camcorder, the quality, with DVD, isn't as good, but, they are
very easy to use. No need to buy a PCI Firewire card.  :-)  All of the
replies
I got to this thread are greatly appreciated! When I began the thread,
I knew nothing about digital camcorders (our old one is VHS-C).
