A new forum to help you make the best of your HD camcorder

Video cameras are complex technology, which sometimes make us ask ourselves so many questions:

  • What is the best camcorder for our needs?
  • How to adjust optimal settings for best video quality?
  • How to capture video from the camcorder and transfer it to a computer for editing? Which video editing software is easiest or most powerful?
  • How to burn DVDs or blu-ray discs?

To help you find answers to these questions and more, Friends of HD Video now launches a new online community, ready to welcome you.

Everyone seems to be having a blog these days, but as I was thinking of ways to share what I learn about shooting, editing, and publishing HD video, I wondered if maybe a blog is more flexible and feature-rich than just writing in forums… So here it goes. As much as I like to get the most out of my camcorders in this hobby of mine, I hope this irregular blog will help you achieve the same.

Enjoy, and don’t forget to use the Subscribe links for the RSS feed, so as to receive occasional updates through your favorite feed reader!

P.S: although blogs love to receive comments, they’re not so handy for thorough discussions. So please feel free to visit the excellent forum Sony HDV Info .com – I’ll be watching!
