My Sony DCR-TRV33 finally gave up the ghost yesterday, after 6 years of faithful service. Sony says it will cost at least $271 to fix so I'm in the market for a new camcorder.
I've been looking at the Cannon HV30 as a replacement and I had a couple of questions.
I how long does the battery last? Can I get a longer run battery?
And are there any "gotch ya's" with uploading the film via firewire to a MAC using iMovie? This is what I've been using with my Sony.
The Canon VIXIA HV30 seems to work with iMovie very well. Here is another person’s account of using that very camera with iMovie:
As for a longer life battery, Canon sells the BP-2L14 and the BP-2L24. The NB-2L13 that the camera ships with offers 110 minutes of HDV recording with the viewfinder on bright, while the BP-2L14 offers 130 minutes and the BP-2L24 will record for 240 minutes. We carry the BP-2L14 which you can check out here:
I hope that helps.
Because my name is on the business, I work hard to make sure you get the best possible shopping experience. I look forward to hearing your comments .
