Stopped in circuit city one last time yesterday to get guitar hero for cheap but ended up getting a Canon VIXIA HV30 HD video camera for 40% off instead:D

First test movie*******you might have to let it load all the way to play smoothly, my desktop plays it nicely but my older laptop refuses to play smoothly till it is fully loaded:

*****Went past min focus distance on second scene on accident, thats the reason its focused on the cabinets. It was recorded in 1080i on standard miniDV tape that I took out of old sony camera.

Found menu to switch to 720P recording mode today and got some HD miniDV tapes, picture quality is insane. I'll try to find an event happening this weekend that is worth recording to get a good display of the quality it can record.

Very nice......

I dont need my wife to see this or any of yours or Tim's photo threads cause she said she wants to get into camera & taking photos. Which I have no real problem with but from what Tim has said he spent..... Im not giving up anymore hobbies.

That's what he bought B&H at the top of the list has it for $600, and they're a very reputable camera store.

Hahaha, I just clicked the link and didn't read the post - wondered why you were posting about picking up a dog and ice cream at Circuit City....

Nice video, though!
