Cons: MiniDV Format compresses in MPG2 Transport which is NOT compatible with MPG2 for DVD's! Doesn't do AV->Dv (analog to digital) passthrough. Why shoot compressed quality as your original when a MiniDV camera is just a bit larger? Need to get Pinnacle Stu
Summary: I really like the small size, easy to take anywhere. I was hoping to download the video to my computer & burn a DVD-R of my video. Movieshaker (included) is the ONLY software to date that works with this camera. You can export video from movie shaker in several formats so you can import into Pinnacle,Ulead,etc. Problem is the video quality is rather poor, especially if fast moving object in video. I do not recommend this camera.
