Best Camcord for Starting

Hey, I am getting an older Tape Sony Camcorder and I wanted to know what you guys use to edit and what I should upgrade to in the near future. I'd definitely like a sony that can take some of the sony mem cards (I have a psp and many memory cards I can use ) But I would like to keep it cheaper but still have pretty good quality, so if a Sony isn't good for a cheap one then suggest a cheaper cam to tie me over till I get better at making videos then I will upgrade later.

Thanks

I really like my friends MacBook Pro, I will probably get one for college and have it dual boot windows if I ever need to use a windows program for school. Just right now I can't afford one.

Re: Best Camcord for Starting

for that type of stuff there is no wrong choice. get a nice sony hd cam or similar. i'm still using a hi8, 8mm digital from 1998 for that type of stuff. i like it for some reason. i rarely use my pro cams for that type of stuff, not sure why...maybe i like the home movie look the older cam gives.

you should see the local pawn shops here, once I saw a "vintage" sg COPY that looked like it was left in a pool in the sun to rot for 40 years going for 4k
