So my wife and I are expecting our first child. I really want to document the whole process from now (3months along) to ....who knows when. I want to film things like preparing the nursery, what close family members look like, where we live, etc. You know, the stuff that we all have vague memories of and maybe a couple crappy photos or 8mm films of our own childhood. Then I want to put together some short videos on iMovie. Something to show my kid years down the line.
I bought a Sony Digital8 video cam a few years ago before I got my iMac, but want to get something that will work well with my new computer. I'm all about simplicity, plug and play, etc. Could you guys give me some pointers on what brands I should be looking at? Are some better suited to Macs? I'm not looking for the top of the line, show up my neighbors with my $3k video equipment, but something reasonably priced.
Thanks for any help.
