I picked up a video camera today -- a Panasonic SDR-H200 with a built in 30 gig hard drive. No tapes. Yay. It adds a step for using iMovie, because the files are stored on the recorder as mpeg2's and have to be converted back to dv clips for iMovie, but you can also upload them directly to Google Video off the recorder, so that cuts down a step if you're going that route. Since the main objective here is quick web clips for the grand-parents, I think it will work out ok.
Anyhow, here's the new Viv-Vid video podcast page, for the things I do decide to run through iMovie.
Later... ok, iWeb just sucks. Moving to Blogger: Viv-Text.
