    I'm looking for an all purpose video camera to replace my Hi-8 from 10 years ago.......that is digital, and I can edit/view it on the computer.

    I'll be using it for family events and hunting ventures......I'd like to use it to capture wildlife and long range shots......also bow shots

    I'd like excellent video definition and would love it to pick up an arrow in flight, as to be able to see the shot/flight/hit

    Do I need Hi Def?
    Is an internal hard drive, miniDV, or DVD preferred?


    I just got back from Best buy and bought the Sony Handycam HDR-SR5
    internal HD 40GB
    Hi Def
    4.0 mega pixels still shot
    1080 60i resolution


    I still have time to return it.......what do you guys have/think?
    thx
