Digital camcorders are the best choice if you intend to edit home videos on your computer. Whether to a PC or Mac, video can be transferred directly to a computer that supports an IEEE 1394 connection, and many computers come with video editing software.
Here are a few features available on digital camcorders helpful for editing:
Built-in Title Generator - Add Happy Birthday, Congratulations, or anything else to personalize your footage.
Time-and-Date Stamp - An added feature to show when the event your recorded occurred.
Time Code - This feature references exactly where you are on the tape.
