I'm in the market for a video camera and was curious to know what kind you use to record all of your videos? Do you still like it? If not, anything you can recommend for a reasonable price? Any help here would be greatly appreciated.

I'll let Robb handle this...but I know there will be a few things he'll ask you so he can give you a better answer, so let me get those out of the way:
- Is it for shooting a day at the park, or mostly onride video?
- How much would you like to spend?
- Do you have any other camera parts or accesories?
- Will you be editing the video? Making DVD's?
- What kind of Computer do you have?
Answer those questions and he'll be able to help you better!

I got my Panasonic PV-GS14 at best by, with an extended 4 year warranty. If anything breaks in it, they will fix it, and if they fix it 3 times they will replace the whole camera, and if that model is not sold any more, they will give me a brand new one thats a new model.
I use a DCR-TRV280. Ir is pretty small, light weight. Some good features are the photo option, steady shot, night shot, and USB and Fire Wire streaming option (easy for editing). It was around $300.00 and came with pretty much all the tools you need but the Fire Wire card. One other thing is although it is digital, you need a Cassete tape (a normal one works fine). When you use a 160 min. tape you only get 80 min. out of it because it is digital and the tape are recordable.

I am also using a Sony ( HC - 20), but would like to know what software you use for the editing process and burning onto DVD. Have tried pinnacle for the editing, but have trouble when burning.
I found out that if I use pinnacle for the editing along and then use Nero 6 Reloaded to burn to DVD the process works, but it lacks quality with the footage. Any thoughts on how I can inprove the quailty??
