Skip the tape, the DVD, or mini-DVD, and go right to the hard drive. That's what you want anyway, right?
Well, it is what I want. Especially after my experience with a certain Sony mini-DVD camcorder.
BIOS is has a description of these cameras, or you could check out the JVC website.
The prices are kind of high, but if you account for what one would have to spend on media over the life of the camera, that brings the price down too. Its a way cool idea, and timely too. One of the more frustrating things about the small DVD's is that they run out after such a short time.
All that plastic ends up in the landfill at one point or another as well. I am diggin' on these (except for the pricey numbers).
